Concerto for Percussion duo and Orchestra (1st movement only) - Piano reduction (solo parts and Piano part).
The title Spices, Perfumes, Toxins! refers to three substances that are extremely appealing, yet filled with danger. Spices delight the palate, but can cause illness; perfumes seduce, but can also betray; toxins bring ecstasy, but are deadly.
The concerto combines Middle-Eastern drums, orchestral percussion, and rock drums with orchestral forces – a unique sound both enticing and dangerous. The work was written for the duo PercaDu. — Avner Dorman
