Cerha Concerto for Percussion in Leipzig

Posted on 12 May 2011

Friedrich CerhaShooting Star Martin Grubinger performs Friedrich Cerha’s Concerto for Percussion tonight and tomorrow in Leipzig. Riccardo Chailly conducts the Gewandhausorchester.

Reviewing the world première for the Neue Musikzeitung, Gerhard Rohde wrote:

“The richness of rhythmic finesse and complexity is astounding, giving the work an overwhelming physical liveliness. The sophisticated sound that Cerha invents for both the orchestral part and for the formidable percussion ensemble is also fascinating.”
