“It builds to such a pitch of skittering hyperactivity that by the end Copeland seems to be intent on developing his own genre – maximalism, perhaps.”
The first concerto written with his own performance in mind, Stewart Copeland has created a work that features his own brilliant drumming plus complimentary parts for members of the percussion section and an array of exotic percussion. The work celebrates the un-tapped virtuosity of the symphonic percussion section and demonstrates that the distance between rock drummer and timpani virtuoso is not as fas as one may think.
The concerto is titled Tyrant’s Crush: Concerto for Trapset and Orchestra and was commissioned by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
