Program Notes

The piece does not include the complete solo percussion part and has, in some aspects, been rewritten to work as a solo. The name Arena derives from the fact that during a performance of the concerto version, the soloist walks between percussion set-ups located at various positions on stage.

In the concerto version, three set-ups are used: at the back centre of the stage is the large multi-percussion set-up (this is the one used in the solo version, which includes 26 pitchless instruments); in the front to the right of the conductor is a small set-up consisting of belltree, dubaci, waterphone etc.; and to the left of the conductor is a five octave marimba. Arena – Percussion Concerto No.1 begins and ends its 27-minute journey at the set-up at the back of the stage. The duration of the solo version is approx. 10-11 minutes.

Arena - Solo Version was premiered by Johan Bridger at Kulturhuset in Stockholm on 18 November, 2004.[1]
