Programme Notes / Performance Details :

While my Trap Drum Fantasy follows no preconceived form, its two outside Allegro sections are clearly related in their exuberant spirit and substance. In the center, contrast is provided by somewhat slower passages featuring dynamically softer and ominous glissandi on the floor tom-tom. Suddenly, the Allegro vigorously re-asserts itself, developing further the mood of the opening measures. There follows an inexorable buildup of tension accomplished by ever-growing rhythmic irregularity and volume which serves to bring the FANTASY to its rousing conclusion. Trap Drum Fantasy was commissioned for Peter Jarvis by Calabrese Brothers Music. – Wayne Peterson

Trap Drum Fantasy was premiered by Peter Jarvis on the New Music Series at William Paterson University on November 10, 2008.

Trap Drum Fantasy is included in Drumset Music for the Concert Stage, volume 1 which is an anthology of drumset pieces commissioned for Peter Jarvis by Calabrese Brothers Music.
