The NWS Percussion Fellows are ready to rock out on everything from drums, whistles and harmonicas and even to trash. Composer Nathaniel Stookey scavenged a city dump to create his symphony of garbage, Junkestra. Stookey joins the Fellows with instruments he created from bike wheels, bird cages and other recycled material. Kenji Bunch infuses his Concerto with jazz, blues and rock, propelling it to a rousing finale. By placing items inside of two pianos, George Crumb creates a fantastic sound world in Music for a Summer Evening (Makrokosmos III), praised as “so successful and openhearted, it is among the most frequently performed avant-garde chamber works.”
