The Group performed Music for Three by itself in performances on 7 February 1985, 7 October 1986, 17 October 1986 and as part of musicircuses on 4 April 1995 and 27 November 1999. The PAS recorded the concerto’s premiere for its archive: John Cage, Renga with Music for Three, Percussion Group Cincinnati, Percussive Arts Society Museum Recording, 1984. 22. John Cage, MUSIC FOR: Parts for voice and instruments without score (no fi xed relation), title to be completed by adding to ‘Music for’- the number of players performing (New York: Henmar Press, 1984).

Peck insisted on mailing Otte recordings of some of his recent orchestral compositions so the Group could hear the type of music he had been composing. The men agreed that if they were to undertake this project they wanted the resulting composition to harness all of the Group’s strengths. Otte offered Peck three initial requests for the composition, which would become The Glory and the Grandeur: A Concerto for Percussion Trio and Orchestra (1988). First, he asked Peck to compose some portion of the piece during which the three soloists could come shoulder to shoulder on one marimba and play together, as they had grown accustomed to doing for a series of Chilean songs on the Group’s touring program.

15 While Cage never commented on his considerations during those hours between the two phone calls, he would have been justified to simply pat himself on the back had he realized what Otte was asking. This “wonderful idea” was literally one of Cage’s from eight years earlier. His existing score for Renga already provided written instructions for such a composition. Otte knew of Renga with Apartment House 1776 because of the publicity surrounding its premiere performances during the Bicentennial and through his conversations with the composer, but he had not previously examined the score.
