Percussion, trumpet, cello-Drumpetello is unique-this is the first four pieces ever published for this instrumentation.
When Drumpetello first got together to play music as an ensemble, there was just one problem: there were no pieces yet written for our unique combination of percussion, trumpet, and cello. The group decided to rectify this situation immediately. They contacted four composers, who each agreed to write a piece: Thomas Osborne, Matthew Schoendorff, Lauren Bernofsky, James Stephenson.
Each composer wrote a piece inspired by the folklore and mythology of Mexico (or in some cases, the people and societies who lived there before the country of Mexico existed). The result has been four distinct and evocative portraits of what can be called Mesoamerican culture, which are also the first four pieces ever published for this instrumentation.
