Gérard Grisey (1946-1998)
Le Noir de L’Etoile for 6 percussionists, tape and live electronics (1989-90)
This regional premiere of Le Noir De L’Etoile was performed on 11/19/12 at Rowan University by Dean Witten with an Alumni All-Star Ensemble. The musicians were Matthew Witten, percussion 2; Anthony DiBartolo, percussion 3; Brittany Hoffman, percussion 4; AJ Lustig, percussion 5 and Mika Godbole, percussion 6.
I was bummed about missing Talujon’s performance of this massive work at last year’s Bang On a Can marathon, so finally now I can hear it in its entirety.
