These six world première recordings present one of percussion’s greatest masters in a panorama of works by leading composers of our time.

This remarkable journey through sound and rhythm includes electronic extensions such as the dramatically funky climaxes to Bruno Mantovani’s Le Grand Jeu, a dreamy musical halo around metal instruments in Marco Stroppa’s Auras and Jean-Claude Risset’s sound illusions in Nature contre Nature.

Peter Eötvös’s Thunder is a unique quest to explore the potential of a single bass timpano, while Philippe Hersant revisits Berlioz, Schubert and Gounod in his Trois petite études. René Leibowitz’s Three Caprices were among the first works written for solo vibraphone.
