Description

An addition to the celebrated collection for solo percussion instruments, this one is sure to be a must for the advancing percussionist. The eight solos in this collection were conceived for the serious, practicing snare drummer and will provide suitable repertoire for contest, jury, recital, and auditions. Technical ability will be challenged, as will the power of concentration as the player strives for sensitive musicianship.

Instructions

Metronome markings are given as performance tempi. It is suggested to practice the material slowly, at first striving for accuracy of rhythm, clarity of articulation, proper dynamics and expressiveness of the musical phrase. Observe stickings where indicated. Rolls are specified as follows: 1. open / rudimental style: clearly articulated RRLL etc.
2. closed / orchestral style: a smooth, hand-to-hand series of an indeterminate number of buzzes creating a "long tone"
3. press roll: simultaneously pressing / buzzing both sticks into the drumhead for short duration
