Program Notes


This work, for percussion ensemble, would be difficult but worth the effort for a high school level ensemble, and would make a fine style-piece of medium difficulty for the college percussion ensemble. The instrumentation is for four bar percussion performers, one player on accessories, a timpanist, and a performer on drum set. A bassist can be substituted for the timpanist if the school does not own timpani that will reach a low C#. The mallet parts are for only two mallets, but include some tricky octave work and tight ensemble between the performers. The parts and score are easy to read; the instructions are precise. - Linda Pimentel[1]
