Music for Frame Drums is a collection of compositions in the form of solo, duo and quartet. The instruments used are Tamburello, Riqq, Frame Drum in lap style, Bendir. Some of these songs have become part of the repertoire of bands dear to me as the project Masters of Frame Drums
(along with Glen Velez, Zohar Fresco and Murat Coskun), is the case of the two compositions Conversazione per due Tamburelli
. Another composition I'm very fond of for various reasons is Maremosso
, also included in this book.
Here is the list of the compositions in the book:
(solo for frame drum in lap style and foot bell)
- CONVERSAZIONE PER DUE TAMBURELLI
(duet for two tambourines)
(duet for frame drum in lap style and tambourine)
(quartet for Moroccan bendir and 3 lap style frame drums of different sizes)
- TARANTELLA PER NICCOLÒ
(solo for tamburello)
I hope that my music can give you the same joy I felt in writing it and performing it.
