Snowblind

for solo percussion and strings


  • Instrumentation: solo percussion and strings
  • Edition: performance material
  • Order No.: LSL 1446-01

Description
One of three works Duddell has written for percussionist Colin Currie, "Snowblind" highlights the melodic possibilities when writing for percussion.  Throughout its three movements, Duddell takes the performers through a modern day Baroque sound-world with both the use of ritornello sections and focussing on unity between the accompaniment and soloist. "Snowblind" will stretch post Grade-8 students and is ideal for an exam or audition situation.
