Composer / Arranger : Igelsrud, Douglas
Composer / Arranger Details:

Douglas Igelsrud has been keeping Syracuse Symphony audiences on the edge of their seat for over three decades with the thundering sound that emanates from those glorious brass colored kettle drums (better known as timpani).  Mr. Igelsrud holds bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Miami and from the University of Iowa. 

Mr. Igelsrud did advanced study at the Cleveland Institute of Music with his mentor, Cleveland Orchestra Timpanist Cloyd Duff, and performed in the Institute orchestra under the baton of James Levine.  He has also played with the San Antonio Symphony, Colorado Philharmonic, and the Birmingham Symphony.

Programme Notes / Performance Details :

This is listed a grade 5 solo, the playing time is 2:00, and requires four drums (the two middle drums must have pedals).  The work should prove to be a welcome addition to the repertory.  It is well-written, and incorporates tempo and meter changes.  Special instructions are very clear, the print is clean.  An advanced high school player will find this piece challenging, and a college player will also find it rewarding.
