Having spent four decades introducing percussion culture and repertoire to the Hungarian classical music scene and touring the world, the Amadinda Percussion Group launched the Amadinda Percussion Project, which introduces the youngest generation of percussionists to 20th-21st century percussion music outside of the institutional framework, but in close cooperation with the Liszt Academy. The latest concert focuses on Hungarian composers, and the programme includes a selection of repertoire from the last fifty years. Two excerpts written for automobile horns from Ligeti’s opera Le grand macabre, premiered in 1978, will be performed alongside a transcription of Continuum, originally composed for harpsichord, and a 2006 piece for four percussionists, Schlag-spiele, by Márton Kerékfy, also known as a Ligeti scholar, László Sáry’s legendary piece A Stone in a Pitcher, composed in 1978, which was conceived as a Steve Reich etude but has become perhaps the most performed work in the Hungarian repetitive repertoire, and Balázs Juhász’s 2004 solo composition for a huge percussion apparatus, this postmodern death dance. The classical repertoire is represented by Barnabás Dukay’s Couperin transcription, the charming Tic-toc choc, and the piece by the young contemporary percussionist Fredrik Andersson from Sweden will evoke the figure of Santa Claus, lonely for 364 days, concluding with a percussion transcription of one of Olivier Messiaen’s most beautiful choral settings.
