percussive repertoire
on: January 25, 2004, 09:57:48 PM
I'm searching for a percussive style piece (i was thinking either bartokish or south american) for a student who has a tendency to loose her sense of detail and nuance when performing. It's for an exam that corresponds to the ninth year of study, and it has to be less than six minutes long. It can't be a set of several short pieces, and I can't think of anything good off hand. Any ideas? Thanks

Bartok's Allegro Barbaro maybe ?
It's not very hard and a really nice piece.

Prokofiev's Toccata if she is really good,
