New this week is spectacular video of the Meehan/Perkins Duo‘s performance this past summer at the Round Top Festival of Jonathan Leshnoff‘s Concerto for Two Percussionists and Orchestra! Here is the first movement:
The duo premiered the work, which they had commissioned, with this performance with the Round Top Festival Orchestra. The Washington Post has said of Leshnoff, “He thinks big, and with its twin virtues of accessibility and architectural coherence, you come away from the concerto feeling that you’ve heard something pleasantly significant.” We think those virtues show up here in abundance.
The full performance video can be found at the Duo’s Vimeo channel.
