Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Tibetan singing bowls, also known as Bowls of Blessed Sounds, are brassware used in Tibetan Buddhist rituals. When stroked or rubbed with a stick, they produce free and natural sounds like the curling up of smoke or the enshrouding of mist. To enhance such an effect, singing bowls of three different sizes are placed around the percussion I, II and the timpani; thus the “sounds of blessings” spread through space and fill the air.
