ESEGESI Percussion Quartet
In 2015 Simone Rubino, Sergey Mikhaylenko, Christian Felix Benning, and Richard Putz (with Patrick Stapleton taking his place on this recording) joined together to realize the ideal of classical quartet playing as a percussion quartet. Together they explore the possibilities of percussion instruments and demonstrate the rich and varied range of expression that is born of the combination.
They chose ESEGESI as the name for their ensemble—the title of the third part of Roberto Bocca’s trilogy. Concerts have taken the ESEGESI Percussion Quartet to venues including Munich’s Prinzregententheater, the Heidelberger Frühling, Staatstheater Darmstadt, Herkulessaal of the Munich Residenz, and Musikfest Bremen.
