Xenakis-Persephassa (S) - Product Information
Persephassa by Iannis Xenakis for percussion sextet. The title of this innovative and ambitious work refers to the goddess Persephone. This piece gains much of its effect from having the six percussionists distributed around the audience. The dramatic impact of utilizing the performance space in this manner is evident many passages throughout the piece in which accents or imitative rhythms are passed around the ensemble.
