return to Compositions
2nd Concerto for Tabla and Percussion Quartet:

This work follows a similar structural plan as the first Concerto, with the exception that there is an extended coda in which all five musicians participate equally. Once again, in the last solo tabla section the tabla player performs several fixed compositions (tukras), only this time I wrote them out so that I could highlight some of the rhythmic syncopations by doubling the rhythms with other members of the ensemble. This work is dedicated to Shawn Mativetsky.
