Welcome to Bachovich Music Publications. Extraordinary percussion literature for the 21st century! Looking for recital pieces, chamber pieces, and concerti? We're here to serve you the finest in percussion music 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.
These three movements are based on the idea of the implied harmonies that lie within Bach's Violin Sonatas and Partitas. Here both instruments work out their own identities through many timbral effects, creating a sense of tension and ambiguity. Of special note is the new effect required for the vibraphone player-the use of harmonics, which sounds 2 octaves higher than written.
Fifteen Miniatures for Snare Drum is a collection of short pieces based on themes from the symphonic literature. The etudes are intended to be technically challenging while musical in form, and fun to prepare and perform!
