Review

This percussion ensemble is written with the high school percussion ensemble in mind. Scored for a quintet, one difficult mallet part is included, as is a deceptively difficult timpani part, although good young players should be able to handle them. The rest of the composition can be performed by a high school ensemble. The parts are easily read and could be performed unconducted without difficulty. The composer is very specific with mallet indications. - Michael Hooley[1]
