MEASURES OF ART
The orchestra plays on both melodic percussion instruments and non-melodic. Melodic group consists of: group of glockenspiels (soprano, alto), group of metalofons (alto, bass), group of xylophones (soprano, alto, bass), and double bass bars. Sound compliments pitched timpanies. Orchestra uses about 50 non-melodic instruments: different sized drums, cymbals, different varieties of color instruments (guiro, kabasa, tempelbloki, china bars, Crotale, Claves, and many others) often with exotic origins. Percussion instruments are complimented with classic instruments: basses, trumpets, sakshorns, tubes, harps, zither and
electronic instruments. The range of sound is comparable to the scale of symphony orchestra, while the dynamics of the sound
and the possibility of its significant varying allows to play in a relatively large concert halls, preserving the interpretation features of performed pieces.
