New Work By Stephan Hodel
Christoph Mueller writes that in November 2010 his band Blaserphilharmonie Zug, Switzerland, premiered a piece by a young swiss composer (living in london) Stephan Hodel. for percussion-quartett and wind band, about 20 minutes long and a grade 4-5 for the band. Soloists were Quadrums Percussion Quartet a superb ensemble (www.quadrums.ch) around marimba virtuoso Raphael Christen (www.raphael-christen.ch). he is a true master of the marimba and did the premiere of the concerto for marimba and wind ensemble by Carl Ruetti last year (with blaeserphilharmonie zug.) This Marimba Concerto I would highly recommend, this is real fun!!!
