This is Holst’s own version of The Planets for two pianos, dating from the years 1914 to 1916. Unlike most keyboard versions of an orchestral work, it was not an arrangement of the full score. It existed before the orchestral score had been written out, although details of the instrumentation had ...

I've always been interested in word games, puzzles, symmetry and palindromes. After my freshman year at school, I decided to explore the idea of writing a piece that would flip directly at the center and then play itself backwards. Not knowing this had been done before and on a vastly more complex s...

Bachovich Gyil Concerti performed by Valerie Naranjo with the National Symphony of Ghana

On Saturday evening August 18th, The National Symphony of Ghana celebrated the 25th anniversary of the inauguration of its National Theatre - on the National Theatre Main Stage - with a special concert entitled “Tiera Pura” (spelled the West African way) of Ghanian works for orchestra. Central to the concert were four concerto movements for Gyil and Orchestra, published by Bachovich, with soloist Valerie Naranjo. The orchestrations for these works build upon traditional and contemporary pieces for gyil, and demonstrate the deep connection between traditional West African harmony and form, and that of American popular music. The movements performed: Fer Barre Kona Jeno (Don’t Play Favorites); Gmeng Se Naa Eee (What Shall We Do) , and Tierra Pura movement IV, the concert’s namesake (orch. Beall); and Fumaa Bwiche Naamwin Je (You and I will Go) (orch. L. Leon Pendarvis of Blues Brothers and Saturday Night Live)

Valerie Naranjo wrote Tierra Pura I-V (a work for gyil, Cuban percussion ensemble, and vocal quartet) in 2017 to honor The city Santiago de Cuba. She and Barry Olsen were traveling Cuba as part of New York University’s Global Institute for Advanced Studies project “Translucent Borders”, an initiative spearheaded by NYU Tisch’s Dr. Andrew Teirstein to explore and elucidate the dynamic of music and dance at borders. Tierra Pura IV was orchestrated for Translucent Border’s workshops with Ghana’s National Symphony during the “Borders’ " second journey to Ghana in 2017.
The concert’s title was taken from “Tierra Pura movement IV” The original Tierra Pura's entire 5 movement suite was premiered by Valerie and the music/dance company “Cutumba” (Idalberto Sido, director) with NYU Tisch dance professor James Martin choreographing, at The Fidanze Festival in Santiago on April 28, 2017. This was yet another Translucent Borders’ event. Valerie has performed movements of “Tierra Pura" with various ensembles at the “Young Indians” Festival in New Delhi; the Mandl Festival in Chennai, India; the "Cuba Disco” Festival in Havannah; and at North Florida State University (Dr. Andrea Venet, percussion director).

Other concerto movements have been performed by the CSO Orchestra (Lisa Grossman, conductor), The Oklahoma Art Institute Chamber Orchestra (Jeff Grogan, conductor); and twice with The Enid Symphony Orchestra (Douglas Newell, conductor). Wind Ensemble Arrangements of Fer Barre Kona Jeno, Gmeng Se Naa Eee, and Tierra Pura movement IV, have been performed and recorded by the SUNY Fredonia Wind Ensemble (Dr. Paula Holcombe, Director of Bands).

     Mallets: I suggest using the same type of thickness for both hands, especially since the music calls for three or four-note chords usually in the same area of the instrument. Do not use a mallet that is too hard at the top of the range, also not too soft to make sure it still gives a clear t...

     Have you ever been at a meeting when you wanted to say that? For some reason, this melody popped into my head when the question was considered. It’s a funk-like tune in D minor that has a Caribbean flair, some cool counterpoint, and a catchy line shared between vibes and pan. It’s just p...

     The idea for Borneo came from my wish to associate two instruments made of the same material: palissander wood. More precisely it’s the French Bassoon which is made with this African or Brazilian wood instead of the German system which is manufactured with maple wood.
