Percussion wizard Martin Grubinger plays new concerto by Fazil Say
Ace percussionist Martin Grubinger plays a new concerto by Turkish composer Fazil Say. Though Say does not use traditional Turkish instruments, the pulse of the Anatolian Peninsula may be detected in the performance instructions for the finale. Modest Mussorgsky likewise drew inspiration from folk tradition, but also from such composers as Hector Berlioz. The Symphonie fantastique completes the circle and makes this a real percussion night.
