The Paris Percussion Group is a set of twelve percussionists bringing together the french young generation. Soloists in classical or baroque orchestra, international soloists or teachers, those musicians are all deeply involved to defend the percussions’ repertory. They also really want to lead the public to
discover endless sound and rhythmic ranges of this instruments family. The PPG also gives eclectic masterclass and clinics by the diversity of his members. Their repertory is composed of pieces for 12 (Maresz, Robin, Fujikura...), some transcriptions (Ma Mère l'Oye, the
Rite of Spring...) and commissioned pieces (Markeas, Zimmerli, Mathuriau...). The Paris Percussion Group is supported by Innovative Percussion, Zildjian and Bergerault.
