Work introduction

Following the highly acclaimed first performance of Étoile at Salzburg Festival, the Salzburger Nachrichten newspaper wrote that it could well have been written by someone “young and untamed”. However, in addition to the impulsive array of eruptions provided by no fewer than six percussionists (linked together through in-ear headphones ), Cerha weaves a fascinating tapestry of colour using marimba, xylophone and microtonal mallet instruments.
