Chicago Tribune reviews Prof. Avner Dorman’s premiere of Eternal Rhythm

Howard Reich from the Chicago Tribune wrote a review of Sunderman Conservatory Prof. Avner Dorman’s “Eternal Rhythm (Percussion Concerto),” a 2018 work that “places enormous technical and musical demands on the soloist.”

“From the opening pages, it was clear that ‘Eternal Rhythm’ was going to be as much tone poem as concerto, composer Dorman having conceived the solo part for marimba, vibraphone, timpani, melodic tom-toms, tin cans and whatnot,” Reich wrote. “‘Eternal Rhythm,’ in other words, was as much about timbre and line as it was about pulsation and syncopation.”
