Programme Notes / Performance Details :Bateria for solo timpani is an ideal selection for any percussionist looking for something off the beaten path of timpani literature. Inspired by Brazilian samba batucada rhythms, the piece explores "call and response" patterns, surdo and repenique technique, and brush patterns employed by Brazilian drumset players. All in all, Bateria is a friendly and fun introduction to basic Brazilian rhythms and patterns and a great way to do something different with timpani.
