Yoshiko Tsuruta marimba, percussion
Jeremy Fitzsimons vibraphone, percussion
Playful contemporary pieces including Steve Reich and John Psathas, alongside an arrangement of Debussy's La boîte à joujoux.
Formed in 2015, Double Shot provides a colourful mixture of percussion instruments based around marimba and vibraphone. The duo’s strength lies in the wonderfully subtle variety of their performances and the rich, mellow resonance of their instruments.
This engaging concert begins with a set of playful, lively crowd-pleasers by contemporary composers including Steve Reich and John Psathas. The second half is dedicated to Debussy’s exquisite storytelling through his ballet score La boîte à joujoux (The Toy Box) which has been arranged for Double Shot by Yoshiko Tsuruta.
Additional performances: Rotorua (19 May) / Upper Hutt (22 May) / Whanganui (24 May) / Whanārei (27 May)
