Gramley’s first solo recording, “American Deconstruction,” contains five milestone works in multi-percussion’s new modern repertoire. His second solo recording, “Global Percussion,” continues his exploration of important works for the idiom and includes two new commissions and the first release of Philip Glass’ “1 + 1.”
The program also features the United States premiere of Syrian-American Malek Jandali’s Symphony No. 6, The Desert Rose.
In a press release, Willis says, “His music is a unique and compelling fusion of ancient Arabic and Qatari melodies with the modern symphony orchestra. … The Desert Rose weaves a captivating tapestry of emotions, painting a vivid picture of the vast expanse of the desert and its timeless beauty.”
Tickets are $99-$19.
