This collection has been put together to help the learning Timpani player prepare for the particular challenges present in 20th Century Orchestral music. It would therefore be extremely useful for the intermediate player who is soon to be joining their first full-scale symphony orchestra, as the guidance in this book may well last them throughout their time there! Cues are given as well as tips as to the instrumentation of movements, the prominence of each part within the overall sound and lengths of rests. Compiled and annotated by Alan Abel. Includes Bernstein's 'Overture To Candide', Holst 'The Planets' and Carl Orff's 'Carmina Burana'.
