Rannsaich

For Two Great Highland Bagpipes

listen iconListen to Samples

A formidable multi-movement piece designed to bridge the gap between traditional piping and contemporary concert music. 'Rannsaich' features non-traditional tunings and fingerings, and experimental performance techniques that will challenge even the most experienced players. The final section of this work is featured on the Manawatu Pipe Band's 'Twelve Thousand Miles' album (2009). (Approx. 14 minutes; instructions on performing experimental techniques included)
