Extracts for Percussion Ensemble - 8 mins; Suite for 6 percussionists composed of interludes from Nono's orchestral works from the period 1951-1955; edited by Bernhard Wulff; New music; advanced
Luigi Nono wrote in his earlier orchestral works between 1952 and 1955 some interludes or independent parts of the sentence only for percussion instruments. During Nono's time in Freiburg there was a fruitful collaboration with the Freiburg Percussion Ensemble. In discussions, it was suggested that the independent percussion parts of his older orchestral works should be summarized as a suite for the ensemble and thus made accessible to the percussion literature. These are some of the very few examples of European percussion ensemble music from this period. The present five parts were put together according to dramaturgical and practical aspects and should be played in the attacca, but are also excellent objects of study outside the concert setting.
