Campbell-Terra-cotta Warriors (SP)-P - Product Information

This 2006 percussion trio is dedicated to the Caixa Trio (Julie Davila, Julie Hill and Amy Smith). Programmatic in its musical structure and style, "Terra-cotta Warriors" by James Campbell depicts the discovery in 1974 of a 2,200 year-old archeological treasure in ancient China. Consequently, the instrumentation includes five graduated drums for each performer, a wind wand (aerophone), woodblocks and cowbells, suspended clay flower pots, China cymbals and other suspended cymbals. After a rhapsodic introductory passage, steady sixteenth notes in the total ensemble give way to a mixed-metered passage in 7/8, 5/8 and 6/8. Alternating between lyrical and rhythmic textural contrasts, this composition ends with a flurry of loud unison rhythms, which cause the ending to be very dramatic. This trio would be excellent for mature college percussionists.
