Mr. Ford has arranged a Bach prelude and fugue, a Shakespear ean sonnet, and a sonata-allegro for the percussion group. He will play two pieces by Liszt, “Apres Une Lecture De Dante” and “Hun garian Rhapsody No. 6.” Listen to some of these various I instruments the members of the j ensemble are going to beat, blow, I tickle, or otherwise stimulate.
