Masson-Prim (Prime)-SD - Product Information

Prim (Prime) for snare drum is an outstanding work for solo snare drum by Askell Masson.

"With Prím (Prime) I continued my attention to the possibilities of the snare srum as a solo instrument, having earlier written a Concert Piece (Konzertstück) for snare drum and orchestra. Prím is based on a rhythmic pattern which the first fifteen of the prime numbers (1,2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29,31,37,41,43) give, when one uses 32nd-part notes as a basic unit. Evelyn Glennie has now played this piece in most parts of the world, but it was commissioned by the Danish percussionist Gert Mortensen, and written in 1984." - Askell Masson
