Left Edge Percussion, Terry Longshore, Director, begins its Spring 2019 touring season with a performance of Joseph Bertolozzi’s Tower Music Percussion 5tet at the Northwest Percussion Festival at the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls, ID.
The concert is April 6 at 1pm and also features works by Carlos Chavez and Steve Reich. Left Edge Percussion will also perform works by Terry Longshore, John Bergamo, John Luther Adams, Ivan Trevino, David Bithell, and Anna Socolofsky later in the weekend.
The quintet, premiered at Southern Oregon University by Left Edge Percussion is an adaptation by #Bertolozzi of his opus Tower Music. #TowerMusic is a work where Bertolozzi sampled the structures of the Eiffel Tower in Paris (girders, railings, etc.), and created music solely from the sounds of its surfaces, using no other instruments. The album reached the Billboard Top Twenty Classical charts when released in 2016.
