Percussion Concerto: Recreation – Grosses Orchester Graz | Europe Review: Backtrack

[…] Before the interval Jenifer Higdon’s Percussion Concerto, which the American composer wrote in 2005, was performed by the virtuoso British soloist Dame Evelyn Glennie.

Glennie seemed to merge with the instruments she played completely, moving with the calmness of a Zen master between the many various instruments, sticks and beating, impressively demonstrating that the percussion is neither loud nor martial.

The reaction from the audience was euphoric.
