Over two nights, Schick takes listeners on a virtuoso tour of the birth and explosive growth of solo percussion music over the past 60 years—an evolution that has paralleled his own growth as an artist.
Right around the time of Steven Schick’s sixth birthday, Karlheinz Stockhausen put into print a new piece that would change Schick’s life, and that of percussionists around the world. With Zyklus, Stockhausen established the genre of solo percussion music. In this two-night special event, Schick plays pieces from throughout the genre's history, culminating in the world premiere performances of two new works commissioned for the occasion.
“Schick's evenness of touch and mastery of pacing make it hard to believe that one person is playing these absurdly complex interlocking timbral and rhythmic patterns, reminiscent of a one man gamelan orchestra.” - BBC Music Magazine
