Program Notes

dedication: to Wilfried Brennecke


Stuck is a trio that is just 36 measures in length, but has maximum expression and tension. Written for just one bongo, suspended cymbal and bass drum, the composition opens with soft rolls which are contrasted with short rhythmic motives and accents. With a tempo of 60 mm, the composition requires interplay between the three performers. The composition concludes with a long fermata that permits improvisation to a long, loud roll ending. The print is very clear and easy to read, although all instructions are in German with no translation for performances by other cultures. Each player performs from a score. An excellent trio that calls for limited instrumentation. It will make an excellent opening to the ensemble concert. Highly recommended. - George Frock[1]
