Music with Mallets

Written specifically for the Society for New Music, Marc Mellits' work, "Platter of Discontent" is music inspired (and titled) by the bold and funky Kristi McKay, a woman exemplifying courage. The work’s driving rhythms, soaring lyricism, and colorful orchestrations are punctuated by the percussive melodies of mallet instruments. We’ll hear selections from it on this New Sounds, plus some minimalism meets jazz from Joseph C. Phillips Jr. and Numinous, and layered mallet music by Tom Collier. And more.
