Based on themes from Mahler's 7th Symphony, Kirk J. Gay's Farfenmarch is an enjoyable solo for four timpani. Various sections contrast from march style to adagio and make full utilization of all four drums. Glissandi effects are used occasionally as well as a few areas of minor pedaling. Requires four timpani, Farfenmarch is currently on the group 1 solo list for the Florida Bandmasters Association and will provide a great selection for recitals, festivals, or juries.
