A Rainy Day

for Percussion Quartet (2019)

The sounds of wind, rain, thunder are recreated in a lively music picture, after which the scene moves to a pensive person who watches the storm behind a window. Here his ideas and thoughts mix together, and create a melody striclty connected with what he’s watching. Finally the scene turns again to the storm, which ends to an explosive rainbow.

In this quartet only metal and skin instruments are involved, in particular two vibraphones, tubular bells, glockenspiel, crotales, gongs, tam-tam, cymbals, and so on, with many different techniques, which create original and particular tones and sounds.
