Zivkovic-Quasi una Sonata (SP)-V/Alm/P/PN - Product Information

" Quasi una Sonata consists of three attacca movements, each featuring one certain instrument group. The score has been written primarily with the intension to get the best possible work percussively rather than trying to write for new sounds and instruments that have never been heard before......

Finally , free from the pressure to create the 'new & unheard', composers can primarily compose music. The challenge is in the fine nuances, in the atmospheric or energetic mood that can be reached and colorfully painted especially with the vast array of different percussion instruments. Yet even now I pledge for reduction, to get the largest possible output from the smallest possible instrumentarium.

At the end- is it a sonata or not? Well, quasi. Enjoy"
