Program Notes

premiere: 25 April 1983, Spring Hill, Kansas, Steve Riley, soloist; Level IV


"A Delivering" is a solo for four timpani tuned to F, C, D, and F. The solo begins with a low-F roll that concludes with a loud, fast sextuplet pattern. The first theme is a lively march or dance-like sixteenth-note pattern. This moves to a second theme that consists of short, dry, spaced eighth-note groupings that require quick muffling or dampening of the heads. A triplet feel pattern returns us to the A theme with slight alterations from the original. The remainder of the solo moves between the A and B themes in a Rondo style. The rapid tempos and sixteenth-note patterns will challenge the technical facility of most timpanists. - George Frock[1]
