KraftWerk composed by Daniel McCarthy. Chamber Ensemble. For Tuba & Percussion (tuba, percussion (kick drum, timbales, 2 log drums, 4 toms, suspended cymbal, small tam-tam, gliss gong, bongos, large woodblock, snare drum, metal, marimba (4.3 octaves), vibraphone, xylophone)). Medium difficult. Duration 13:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.05070).
KraftWerk is a six-movement work showcasing the virtuosic capabilities of both the percussionist and tubist at all times. As usual, McCarthy's percussion writing is extremely effective and fun to play, while the tuba writing ranges from beautiful and lyrical to down and dirty. Excellent for an advanced student or faculty recital.
This composition was commissioned by Alison Shaw, professor of percussion at the Michigan State University School of Music and Marty Erickson, professor of tuba at the Pennsylvania State University School of Music. The piece is a series of six short movements, each demonstrating various timbrel and rhythmic characteristics of tuba and percussion. The name "KraftWerk" refers to the German "techno-funk" group of the same name. The rhythmic precision of this group is likened to the kind of rhythmic animation throughout this piece. The title of each movement represents, in short, the musical fixture of the movement. For example, No. III, "Extensions" features extended tertian harmony while No. VI "Leap Rule" is a highly contrapuntal.
