S08 Ep32: Sticks and Stones, Part 3


“Percussion is physical, as most instruments are.  The body must function well in order to play the instruments well.”  – Evelyn Glennie


There are certain characteristics that identify an instrument as a piano – a keyboard, pedals, etc.  Or a flute.  But what is “percussion?”  This episode shares works and performances from women playing a variety of instruments that all fall under that single, simple description.
