Reviews

“Dr. Larrick’s procedure in this volume is to review salient articles, books, and compositions of his specialty. It is thus a guide to the noteworthy literature and compositions of the percussion world. The story is laced with biographical minutiae about the author’s own experiences. Some episodes are anecdotal and amusing. However, for the most part, the many personal details concern the serious issues and challenges posed in the world of performance. Thus, performers who read it will learn of the challenges in the field and how to avoid pitfalls along the way…. This book is essentially a review of important percussion music and literature from the perspective of an experienced professional.” – Richard Pinnell, PhD, Professor of Music, University of Wisconsin – La Crosse
