Overview

Solitude, written for 4 timpani drums, is an intermediate level timpani solo. Joe's goals when writing this collection of pieces was to create a timpani solo that would be accessible as well as be a little different than the standard etudes out of the books.

The first movement is somewhat regal and articulate. The idea is that it is all about touch, clarity and finesse on the drums.

The second movement also focuses on touch and quality while also introducing roll technique so smoothness there is critical.

The third movement is the aggressive movement of the bunch. The feel is much faster and a little bit groove oriented and there's some atypical percussive elements that really make it a strong end to the collection.

Whether you're auditioning for an ensemble, playing a jury or recital, or want something to play at your school concert, Solitude is a great way to show off your timpani skills!
