Talujon Percussion Quartet

By Alexandra Glorioso


Fri., Sept. 30: Talujon Percussion: David Cossin, Dominic Donato, Tom Kolor, Michael Lipsey and Matt Ward

Described by the New York Times as an ensemble possessing an “edgy, unflagging energy”, Talujon Percussion kicks off its 20th Anniversary season with a concert of world premieres by some of America’s most innovative and influential composers. Tonight, Talujon is joined by guitarist, composer and 2010 Guggenheim Fellowship recipient Joel Harrison to premiere his latest work, “Still Life – Turning World.” Harrison’s piece is a seven-movement piece incorporating elements of classical music, jazz and Indian music, commissioned in part by the Jerome Fund. The unique instrumentation includes Anupam Shobhakar on sarod, Ben Wendel on saxophones and bassoon, Drew Gress on bass and Dan Weiss on drums and tabla. Talujon will also premiere “Danger: Giant Frogs” by Eric Moe, commissioned through the Koussevitsky Foundation and “Four Kettledrums” by Alvin Lucier. This event is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency and Meet the Composer’s Cary New Music Performance Fund.
