Phosphorus for Solo Snare Drum and Cymbal
Composer: May Lyon
Instrumentation: Snare Drum, 18” Cymbal
Grading: AMEB 8 | ABS 5 (Advanced)
The chemical element, Phosphorus comes to life in this exciting artisitc showcase.
The structure of the piece moves from the initial supernova to the quietness of space. The highly rhythmic and fast sections express the reactive nature of phosphorus and its transitions from white, to red, to black.
Another extraordinary work in the series for the Melbourne Symphony Snare Drum Award.
