||The composer, Chris Simonson, writes:
The genesis of “Fugue for Percussion” was my first attempt at writing a fugue while in college - 1980 or so. I quickly wrote myself into a corner and moved on to the next page in my manuscript book.
While trying to create a percussion work for 26 musicians, I remembered my earlier effort and decided to take it up again. The result is a fugue, not just for the mallet instruments, but for the battery percussion as well. The piece is a little over 4 minutes long and is a grade 3 ½ work. Also available as a PDF.
