The Percussion Team of the Rijeka Theater and their guests bid you a warm welcome to the first percussion concert in the history of Rijeka!

We are all aware that we are going through difficult times, but with good will, dedication and compromises, a concert has been organized with three new compositions and works that have never been performed before in Rijeka or Croatia.

All the composers are living, and all the works have been composed in the 21st century, with the exception of “Marche pour timbales,” one of the first compositions written for percussion.

We will demonstrate new forms of musical expression that are rarely performed, such as electrical effects and distortions on acoustic instruments, as well as the use of electronics and, of course, percussion, which is the guiding thread, offering much more than usual through these unique combinations, played on more than 20 instruments!
