The program features several traditional Balinese pieces. "Temple of the Palace" and "Gending Gabor Anklung," which features ancient bamboo shakers, are from Gabor, a small village in Bali. A third piece, "Ripe Bananas," is a traditionally styled piece in the 20th century virtuosic "kebyar" style.
The concert will also feature modern works for gamelan, including a piece by Jeff Vick, a local percussionist and composer, which is in the minimalist style of New York composer, Steve Reich. There is also a piece by MSU composer Alan Leech that features the Balinese bamboo marimba, played by Vick. A work by Vick, featuring Leech on the soprano saxophone accompanied by the gamelan, will close the program.
Reynolds Recital Hall is located in Howard Hall, which is across 11th Street from the MSU Duck Pond.
