Burning Ambulance contributor Steve Hicken wrote about the process of composing his Percussion Concerto in issue #3 of the print magazine—you can read that article online here. The piece recently had its live premiere, and it’s now posted on our Soundcloud page.
The Concerto for Percussion and Wind Ensemble, which has two movements (“Fields and Waves” and “Grids and Motors”) and runs about 22 minutes, features percussionist Omar Carmenates and the Furman University Wind Ensemble and was conducted by Leslie W. Hicken on February 22.
