Composer Spotlight

Dr. Nathan Daughtrey’s compositions are “fresh, beautifully scored journeys through dramatic textures” that feature “powerful tensions, velvety textures, lamenting colors and driving vigor.” With over fifty publications for concert band, percussion ensemble, chamber ensembles, and soloists as well as an ever-growing number of commissions, his works have been performed at national and international conferences.

His new work for percussion ensemble, The Cry, emulates the passionate melismatic singing and sparse guitar playing found in flamenco music. The virtuosic singing is scored throughout the ensemble in long flourishes that are full of twists and turns. The antiphonal castanet players help bring in the flamenco elements to the piece, as well as the sounds of flamenco dancers tapping, stomping and clapping in rhythm.
