Considered one of the first multi-percussion concertos, Darius Milhaud’s ‘Concerto Pour Batterie et Petit Orchestre’ (1929-30) is a masterwork in the percussion repertoire. Joseph Gramley and the University of Michigan Percussion Studio has put together a seven part documentary on this landmark piece. Bravo to Joe Gramley, Jonathan Ovalle and the UM Percussion Studio on this great historical resource.
