Percussion Inc: A Senior Recital by Herdi Xha
Total percussion principal Herdi Xha presents his senior recital. The event will include a showcase of arious percussion instruments such as
timpani, snare drums, marimbas, drum set, multiple percussion, and hand percussion. Rather then have a group/band perform several pieces, I will be playing various solo pieces written for each instrument as well as original material with a few special guests
The program will include:
- 2 timpani étude s by Elliot Carted (Satta and improvisation).
- snare drum étude by Jacques Delccluse.
- short Beethoven piano piece transcribed for marimba (Bagatelle no. 6)
- multiple perrcussion solo by Scott Ward ("Sleight of Hand"),
- drum-set and percussion duet with Berklee faculty Eguie Castrillo (hand percussion)
- drum duet with lhend and Berklee student Eric Niesner.
- short original piece performed with the World Beat Pop Lab, a Berklee percussions Iab directed by Berklee faculty Steve Wilkes.
