Review: The Mallow Variations

“Another riveting and thought provoking work from Tim Benjamin”

Testimonial, by Chris Brannick

Every now and then a piece comes along that allows a percussionist to make music with percussion. Not just crash bang wallop, not just 90 mile-an-hour technical pyrotechnics, but real music that can be shaped and coloured and actually allows some measure of artistry. There’s nothing quite as rewarding as that for a percussionist. This is one of those pieces and I truly hope this settles into the percussion repertoire. It certainly deserves to.
