Lo & Behold

Works for Percussion

Ralph Sorrentino


On LO & BEHOLD, percussionist Ralph Sorrentino brings percussion instruments to the fore to highlight their versatility in solo and chamber music settings. Five pieces, from a variety of composers, highlight the moods, emotions, timbres, and textures that can be expressed by the instruments of the percussion family. The revelatory album introduces innovative compositions into the percussion repertoire, and the performers’ technical prowess yields a collection of engaging and musically sensitive performances.


More than an entry into the annals of academic music, LO & BEHOLD stands well on its own as an active listening exploration of the percussion family. From the deep bellows of timpani to the crisp attack of the piccolo snare drum, the album strives to change the way we view the role of the percussion family.
