  Ever since CD Baby shuttered its music store we are no longer able to offer a free exclusively down-loadable single in mp3 format of this work. But you can stream the La Jolla Symphony and Steven Schick performance of Igor Korneitchouk's orchestral work, Tintinnabulation on Soundcloud!
(Score available)
  The title, meaning the frenzied ringing of bells, comes from Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Bells" and is a 2012 reworking of an earlier Korneitchouk score written in the 1980s for brass and percussion octet. When La Jolla Symphony conductor Steven Schick, a celebrated percussionist, requested an overture-like work to open the concert, the choice seemed apt. By the composer's own account, the revised work is almost a percussion concerto. The poem is, after all, a terrific tour de force of alliteration and repetitive cadence:

        Keeping time, time, time,
        In a sort of Runic rhyme,
        To the tintinnabulation
                that so musically wells
        From the bells, bells, bells, bells,
        Bells, bells, bells -
