Four Grotesques for Timpani

No Evil

$9.00

Intermediate to advanced technique is required for a successful performance of this theatrical timpani solo. Each movement is about two minutes in length, making the entire three-movement suite appropriate for the undergraduate timpanist. This composition should be performed as an entire unit and would be an excellent selection for a junior or senior undergraduate recital.- Jim Lambert, Percussive Notes

Symplegades

$8.00

A dramatic portrayal of an incident from the legend of Jason and the Argonauts, Symplegades is a highly effective composition. The use of different striking areas of the timpani, as well as of various sticks and mallets, extends the timbral colors of the instrument. Requires power, control, subtlety and finesse!

The Storm

$8.00

‘The Storm’ is for four timpani and suspended cymbal, which is, at times, placed on one of the timpani. The outer sections are in a driving 5/8, with a slow cadenza-like middle section for contrast. Great contest or audition solo for a developing timpanist!

Timpani Playing in the 21st Century

$32.00

Timpani may be simultaneously the most demanding, the most exciting, and the most satisfying of the symphonic percussion instruments – when they are played well. If not, they can be exactly the opposite. A great timpanist, probably more than most conductors, can influence the overall sound, rhythm and articulation of an orchestra. This book gives insight into every aspect of timpani performance, and every player should read it.Foreword by Bob Becker
