Program Notes


This five and one-half minute suite for four unaccompanied timpani contains three movements, which are essentially fast-slow-fast in their design; however, the first movement begins with a brief Adagio introduction before moving to a march-like section. The shorter second movement, entitled Adagio, is very lyrical and pensive in its content with double-stops on the timpani being utilized throughout. The third movement is in a duple-compound meter and entitled Vivace. For those who are familiar with Mancini's Suite for Solo Drumset, the third movement is akin to the brief timpani solo in the "Afro-Cuban" section of that work-- although this movement is 129 measures in length. This Suite #2 For Timpani is very appropriate for the undergraduate percussion recital or for the advanced high-school timpanist. The tuning changes occur only between movements. Congratulations to David Mancini for an excellently- crafted three-movement solo for unaccompanied four timpani.
