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?

Leo­nie Rei­neke, born in 1989, stu­died mu­si­co­logy and sin­ging at the Folk­wang Uni­ver­sity of the Arts in Es­sen.

One fo­cus of her work is the mu­sic of the 20th and 21st cen­tu­ries, wher­eby she con­cen­tra­tes on cur­r­ents and in­di­vi­dual ca­ses of con­tem­porary music
