Percussion caprioles

Alexej Gerassimez is reluctant to be satisfied with the status quo. It just urges him to open up new horizons, to go on a search for something new. When he was to play a small piece for drum many years ago, he found that the piece had not at all used every possibility of the instrument. Thus the native Essener set to work and created the composition “Asventuras,” with which he will be opening the evening’s concert. The piece begins with a rhythmically tricky section on two mallets and increases to a furious sound imagination that leaves the audience amazed. Alexej Gerassimez will also present his five solo compositions during his solo evening, and they all open up astonishing new worlds of sound. His breathtaking virtuosity and artistic maturity are also reflected in the classics, such as John Psathas' “One Study, One Summary,” Antônio Carlos Jobim's “Chega de Saudade,” and Xenakis' “Rebonds b.”
