Nexus, made up of four master percussionists, has worked together
for more than 30 years. The musicians are internationally renowned, not just for
their virtuosity as individual and group performers and their innovation and creativity,
but for their ability to create music out of just about anything: Swiss cowbells,
Chinese drums, Tibetan prayer bowls, Middle Eastern hand drums and Southeast Asian
water buffalo bells, to name just a few. With a repertoire ranging from military
music to the novelty ragtime of the 1920s, from the haunting rhythms of Africa
to the ground-breaking compositions of Toru Takemitsu, John Cage and Steve Reich,
Nexus delivers a virtuosic spectacle of sound, rhythm and movement.
