Kevin Volans: Akrodha For Solo Percussion: Drums and Percussion

Book Only | Drums and Percussion
Composer Kevin Volans
Publisher Chester Music
Instrumentation Percussion
Akrodha, meaning ‘freedom from anger’ in Sanskrit, was commissioned for international Percussion soloist Jonny Axelsson and written in 1998. Of this work, composer Volans says, ‘What would appear as a fairly moderate piece for Keyboard is amplified a hundredfold in difficulty and effect when translated into drum music…I had, it turned out, written an unspeakably difficult piece.’ The sheet music includes specific instructions on instrumentation and tonality – ‘A pentatonic or diatonic scale is to be avoided’ – though it is clear that the performer has some leeway to make his own choices of elements to create the sounds.Kevin Volans is a twentieth century composer and pianist, who was born in South Africa and has had a variety of inspirational experiences, including time spent studying with Karlheinz Stockhausen, association with the New Simplicity movement, research into African music, and many non-musical friendships and influences. Some of his most celebrated work have been his String quartets.
