The Kulturno Društvo – Associazione Culturale PIROKLASTIKA, in collaboration with the “Casa della Musica” of Trieste, presents the second edition of the “International Percussion Premiere Night”.
The “International Percussion Premiere Night” features a composition competition for new music for percussion duo.
The jury is formed of four internationally renowned musicians and professors: the Italian composer/conductor Simone Fontanelli, the Slovenian composer Matej Bonin, the Argentinian percussionist/composer Fabiàn Pèrez Tedesco and the Dutch percussionist Ramon Lormans.
They will select four works which will be presented and performed by the Popocatepetl Percussion Duo on the 15th of February 2020 at the “Casa della Musica” of Trieste. The works will be professionally recorded at the “Urban Recording Studio”.
One of the four compositions selected will be awarded with a € 1000 PRIZE, donated by the foundation “Fondazione Libero e Zora Polojaz”.
Since 2013 percussionists Gabriele Petracco and Marko Jugovic have shared an ambitious project aimed at transforming the global percussion scene: the Popocatepetl Percussion Duo. Besides the usual duo repertoire, they perform their own compositions and arrangements for two marimbas and for multi-percussion and animation. Marko’s creativity and his skills in music composition combine with Gabriele’s orchestral experience to create a mix of great artistic relevance. They regularly perform in Italy and in the Netherlands including at the Conservatory “G. Tartini” in Trieste, the Doelen Philharmonic Hall in Rotterdam and many more.
