The “Casa della Musica” of Trieste and artistic directors Gabriele Petracco and Marko Jugovic present the first edition of the “International Percussion Premiere Night”.
The “International Percussion Premiere Night” will feature a selection of compositions for percussion ensemble. The first edition will present music for percussion duo.
The jury is formed of three internationally renowned musicians and professors: the Argentinian percussionist and composer Fabiàn Pèrez Tedesco, the Italian pianist and composer Fabio Nieder and the Dutch percussionist and orchestra conductor Hans Leenders.
The jury will select four works that will be presented and performed by the Popocatepetl Percussion Duo on the 8th of September 2018 at the auditorium of the “Casa della Musica” of Trieste. The works will be professionally recorded by the “Urban Recording Studio”.
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.
