A World Apart

Yesterday we went to the orchestra. The programme is entitled Leviathan and Orchestra Wellington’s Programme Notes noted “This concert is very special to OrchestraWellington as it marks the fourth piece presented through our Composer in Residency programme with John Psathas. We are joined by international percussion soloist, Alexej Gerassimez, for the NZ premiere of ‘Leviathan’ and would like to thank the German Embassy for their support of this project.”

Alexej Gerassimez is an amazing performer. Across the front of the stage was a large number of instruments. Several different size drums, two xylophones, a large bowl of water, and a water bottle, among other things.

This percussionist spent 25 minutes playing his instruments, one after the other while rushing about the stage from side to side. Amazing.!

In case you are interested here is a link to a YouTube video showing him in a different percussionist activity.
