Evelyn Glennie: An Interview by Lauren Vogel Weiss (April 2002 Percussive Notes)

Jun 9, 2022, 08:00 AM by Rhythm Scene Staff

“Glennie can coax the barest whisper out of a cymbal, triangle, or marimba, allowing her listeners to experience the silence from which her music emerges. She can also lay into her instruments with the force of a football player, pounding out hundreds of fast, rhythmic notes in less than a minute... From almost inaudible pianissimos to ear-splitting sforzandos on keyboards, drums, and cymbals, she pulls listeners deep into her percussive soul.”

This is an excellent article spotlighting one of our world’s greatest percussionists. Enjoy this spotlight article from the April 2002 issue of Percussive Notes.
