Nocturnes, Book 1 for Solo Percussion

5 solos for percussion


Difficulty: Medium Advanced
Total Duration: 28:00

Nocturnes, Book 1 (for solo percussion) is a collection of concert works for advanced performers. Written during a challenging time, these solos were both a daily distraction and a voice for the composer’s fears, frustrations, and anxieties at that time. Some of the solos are simple in instrumentation, while others combine colors that are less prominent in percussion literature. All of the solos require a good deal of virtuosity and emotional commitment from the performer.
