Multi solo with 3 multi accompanists. Solo part is very difficult. 1st mvmt has interesting sounds, but very long, not enough going on. 2nd mvmt is very fast and has long LH parts, takes some work. If tempo gets up, you`re dead. 3rd mvmt is the best by far. Drums notated by pitch - F up to E - 12 pitches. Meters alternate 5/8, 6/8, and 7/8. Some rhythmic and counting problems. It really flies. Audiences love it. Recital quality.
