Programme Notes / Performance Details :

This three movement Timpani solo pays tribute to some Baroque musical forms as well as to Elliot Carter.B modes. It requires four Timpani + one cymbal.

The March like Intrada B is based on a simple theme, basically in 2/2 and 3/2 time. The performer is required to change between mallets and plastic brushes and later on to quickly switch between the felt/wood ends of the the mallets. A 2- voice cannon leads to a climax which brings the movement to a bravado finish.

The Air is a slow introvert lament played on three drums, constantly softly rolling while making quite a few pitch changes. A cymbal is placed on the forth Tympanum to help create an eerie, melancholic atmosphere.

The quick 5/4 Caprice is joyous and dance like (in fact a sort of Jig). Some tuning changes are required throughout. After an energetic beginning, a rhythmic modulation leads to a bright 6/8 section.

This, having faded away leads to a build up in which the main theme is repeated against a recurring rhythmic figure (played in the center of the drums), which at times calls for some tricky stickings. B This in turn leads to the return of the 5/4 theme and the movement presses on onto a grandiose, almost breathless finish.
