Shafran-Game of the Century (SP)-Chess board etc. - Product Information
The Game of the Century by C. Shafran for two percussionists. This creative piece recreates the famous chess match played in 1956 between Donald Byrne (White), and 13 year old Bobby Fischer (Black) and dubbed The Game of the Century. In its musical rendering, this piece is performed by two players seated across from each other, a chess board between them, the ticking clock driving the piece as White and Black move exactly as Byrne and Fischer did in 1956, and rhythms coinciding with the flow and strategy.
