OK Percussion Duo consists of two musicians from Brno. They present their original repertoire and create their own compositions. They have invited Slovak violinist Milan Paľa for the production.

And what composers will be heard? Miloslav Ištvan often composed for percussion in orchestral settings, in chamber works and as a soloist.

Karel Husa became famous for his Music for Prague from 1968 which he composed in protest against the occupation. His Elegy for vibraphone and marimba with some additional percussion is a five-minute long adaptation of the original composition of the same name for piano.

Argentinian composer Mauricio Kagel used percussion instruments frequently. The song cycle Rrrrrr…. was written over several years. It has 41 autonomous parts and the title of each part begins with the letter R.

Andy Pape’s Marrrrimba Rrrrock was composed in the 1990s and emphasizes the marimba as a percussion rather than a melodic instrument.

In Ostrava composer Edvard Schiffauer’s Seconds we will hear a variety of percussion instruments – a small drum without and with a string, a whirling drum, three cymbals, three triangles, two tam-tams, two bongos, a hih-hat, a whip and woodwinds.

Luboš Fišer is the author of music for many films and fairy tales. The composition Crux for solo violin, timpani and bells is a representation of terror, humiliation and emptiness. It is a direct protest against normalization. Erkki-Sven Tüür is one of the most outstanding composers of our time and Conversio is his best-known composition.
