Program Notes

dedication: to the composer's father; premiere: Spring 1967, University of Iowa, Iowa City, Greg A. Steinke(oboe), Eldon Obrecht(string bass), William Parsons & Steve Tillapaugh(percussion), Jerry Kracht(conductor)


This difficult two movement composition requires the services of two advanced percussionists. In addition to several standard instruments, the score requires 11 turkish cymbals (substitution possibilities are listed), two antique cymbales and nine suspended cymbals. Three of the suspended cymbals are to be placed upside down on timpani heads, then struck with a variety of mallets. - Reviewed By: Larry Vanlandingham[1]
