Timpani (5)

Program Notes


This work for 5 timpani will prove to be enjoyable to audiences and performers alike. The simple yet engaging melody and bass line and accompaniment of the left hand are transformed in four variations through the use of tango-style rhythms and embellishments. The use of consonant harmonic intervals, ranging from octaves to thirds, makes the drums "sing". The timpanist will be challenged by the independent use of the hands both rhythmically and dynamically, and the frequent use of double stops. Pedaling demands are only moderate, all occurring on one drum.
