ACD2 2115

n every era composers have developed new musical combinations, always searching for unusual ways to express their ideas.   The element of tone colour has never been more important than in the 20th century.   New technologies, novel instruments and the ever expanding role of percussion in contemporary scores are but a few of the ways in which the musical universe has grown.   Some performers also feel a need to work with new tonal combinations, to innovate in terms of orchestration and performance techniques sometimes in order to create a larger repertoire for their instrument, or simply for the pleasure of playing music which would otherwise be inaccessible to them.   Their intimate knowledge of their instrument lets them discover new sounds and musical textures, adding another dimension to the composer's work.
