New Music, Les Percussions de Strasbourg, Jean-Paul Bernard, artistic director, The Evolution of Writing for Percussion, March 13, 2011

Overview

Les Percussions de Strasbourg was formed in 1962 to explore the wide range of percussion instruments available in Western, Asian, and African traditions and the rich possibilities they suggest for use in contemporary music. Nearly 50 years later, the group remains committed to exciting performances of contemporary music, always striving to keep its style of presentation fresh and lively.

This performance is funded in part by the French-American Fund for Contemporary Music, a program of FACE with major support from the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, SACEM, CulturesFrance and the Florence Gould Foundation, for their support of this program.
