Gaelic Faram (Jigin Kiev) for 2 pianos and 2 percussionists - 15 minutes. SCORE & PARTS

        Designed as a companion piece for Bartok’sfamous Sonata for 2 pianos and percussion, GaelicFaram (Jig in Kiev) was composed for the Kiev Piano Duo (OleksandraZaytseva and Dmytro Tavanets) and percussionists Dmytro Ulyanov and YevhenUlyanov for the finalconcert of the Kiev “Chamber Music Session” Festival 2012.  Fully revised 2016.

 This isa note-filled, virtuosic piece inspired by British folksong, and includesadaptations of the Dargason jig and the reel Mary Mack, and starts with anattempt to capture some of the ornamented and decorated melody lines typical ofScottish bagpipes.

 Thepercussion is either designed to be set out in 4 groups that the performersmove between, or if enough percussion is available for each percussionist tohave their own (eg: tubular bells, xylophone, drum kit), then they can be setout in two groups, as in the pictures below. [In this 2016 revision,Percussionist II also uses one timp.]

[Also available: Scene from Gaelic Faram (Jig in Kiev) - a new arrangement of a 6-minute scene from the full 15-minute piece,just for 2 pianos, was made in 2016 for the Australian Piano Duo (Vicky Yang& Maggie Chen).]
