Programme Notes / Performance Details :

Jan Williams, prof. Emeritus, University at Buffalo Music Department:

"Soeren Monrads a piece for Snare Drum is rudimental in style but not "traditional" as a composition. It is both challenging and musical, requiring a well developed technique over a wide dynamic range. Well performed, this short etude will clearly demonstrate a performers technique and musicality".

This well-written piece is a great vehicle for teaching different time signatures. The piece starts off in 5/8 and the writing really allows the player to "groove", if played well. It is also a good exercise in dynamics and musicality.
