Future of Percussion
Percussion is one of the most innovative and interesting instruments of the 21st century. Like in hardly any other instrument genre, new playing styles, musical styles, instrument construction and interpretations continue to develop dynamically.
Together with interesting guests, music journalist Leonie Reineke will look back and examine and classify the development of the past decades. Much more interesting, however, will be a current stocktaking and a look into the future: How will percussion evolve — in 5, 10 or even 50 years?
