Instrumentation: Drums (bongos, snare drum, medium toms, large toms, concert bass drum), 4 suspended cymbals (sizzle, China, ride, splash), High and low resonant metals (e.g. brake drums, pipes, etc.), Accessories (tambourine, maracas, cowbell)
Chad Heiny composed Undisclosed in homage to the first percussion ensemble piece he ever played, Michael Colgrass’s Three Brothers. Like that piece, Undisclosed features three soloists out front and six performers in the back. The work is through-composed and boasts a relentless, exciting forward motion that is well served by its vibrant instrumentation of only nonpitched percussion and its dramatic use of dynamics.
Undisclosed comes as a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing individual parts and a recording.
