Rolf Hind’s work for percussion, gamelan and piano evokes the hike to an eponymous Bhutan monastery on a cliff. The piece is written for Javanese gamelan percussion orchestra, two prepared pianos and solo percussion including the canna sonora – a collection of nine-foot aluminium rods.
Rolf Hind has worked closely with living composers across a broad range of styles: from John Adams and Tan Dun, to Ligeti and Lachenmann; Xenakis and Messiaen, to Simon Holt and Judith Weir. He appears regularly at new music festivals throughout Europe and he is in demand as a soloist.
