Program Notes
Three Movements for Four Timpani is largely inspired by Elliot Carter’s Eight Pieces for Four Timpani. Movements I and III use elements from the Carter solo as thematic material; Movement I is based on “Saeta” and Movement III is based on “Moto Perpetuo.” Movement II is entirely original material consisting of highly virtuosic passages, extended techniques, and developed material from movements I and III.
