Program Notes

Ten delightful and very popular pieces for tuned percussion. All the pieces encourage the performer to play musically and sensitively, integrating with the piano accompaniment.


“Ask any young percussionist what their first “real” tuned pieces were with a proper piano accompaniment and they’re bound to mention David Hext.” “….real music with shape and colour together with an interesting piano part which lifts any performance and any performer.” [1]
