TERMINALS QUARTETS - five pieces for percussion quartet

performed by the NYU Percussion Ensemble, directed by Jonathan Haas
with special guests SO Percussion

 

"The NYU Percussion Ensemble’s recent performance of Bobby Previte’s Terminal 4 was an outstanding opportunity for our students to enter the world of improvisation alongside the familiar world of “written out” composition. The result of this amalgamation of musical styles was a creative and satisfying musical experience that spanned many integral art forms. It is without doubt a necessity that every musician have a vast musical knowledge, vocabulary and experience in this genre.

Terminals is the seminal work in the percussion ensemble repertoire for such important and far-reaching experiences. The additional success of the project included the insightful and inspiring direction given to the NYU students by the composer Bobby Previte whom I have found to be an excellent communicator as well as a consummate artist and pedagog."

— Jonathan Haas -  Director/Conductor, NYU Percussion Ensemble and Percussion Program
