Description Concerto for Electric Guitar and Percussion Ensemble (2003)-Marco Oppedisano

This work is a concerto in one movement. It contains aspects of a traditional concerto, but in a condensed form. The work is primarily episodic as the sections tend to move quickly from one to another. The electric guitar writing, drum set writing, driving rhythmic sections and some of the tonal language are derived from rock influences I grew up with.

Work was premiered at Walt Whitman Hall at Brooklyn College on Dec. 11, 2003. Composer featured as electric guitar soloist.

This piece is dedicated to Morris Lang and the Brooklyn College Percussion Ensemble.
