Frozen in Time Percussion Concerto (Piano Reduction) - 25 Min., advanced
Concerto for Percussion and Orchestra - Piano score only, no solo part
The title Frozen In Time refers to imaginary snapshots of the Earth's geological development from prehistoric times to the present day. Although we cannot be sure what the Earth looked like millions of years ago, most scientists agree that the separate continents used to be one mega-continent (as most agree that mankind descended from one prehistoric womb).
Martin Grubinger and the Harmburg Philharmonic, conducted by Simone Young, premiered the work in 2007 in Germany. Each movement imagines the music of a large prehistoric continent at a certain point in time: I. Indoafrica; II. Eurasia; III. The Americas — Avner Dorman
