- Mark Applebaum Commission
I have recently joined a consortium for the commission of a new work for percussion ensemble by Stanford University composer Mark Applebaum. The piece is written for 12 players divided into three groups. Group A is a solo percussionist, Group B consists of 4 players and Group C is made up of 7 players. All three groups play simultaneously with interlocking parts which produces a unique musical texture. Mark Applebaum is always seeking new ground in his compositions and this piece seems like it will continue in that trend. I'm looking forward to receiving the manuscript in January.
