Music Players 70 (1971)

Two percussionists, two pianists; called '70' but recorded in '71.

Bartók's 'Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion' is a later-period, three-movement composition, and one of the composer's most performed works.

New Zealand composer Edwin Carr re-scored and paraphrased his 1955 ballet, 'Elektra', for the Music Players 70 ensemble, presented here in four short parts.

John Rimmer's 'Composition 5 for Percussion and Electronic Sounds' was written for and is performed by solo percussionist Gary Brain, with electronic tape.
