Friday, March 1st, 2019

Persephassa (1969) is the first of Xenakis' innovative and ambitious works for percussion ensemble. The title refers to the goddess Persephone, "the personification of telluric forces and of transmutations of life." The piece was commissioned for the first-ever Shiraz Festival (organized by the Empress of Iran), held at the historic desert site of Persepolis -- an awesome and altogether fitting setting for such a powerful work.
