Tompkins-March-SD/pedal BD - Product Information

Joe Tompkins' March for solo snare drum and kick drum (1 player) was commissioned for the 2009 Atlanta Symphony Modern Snare Drum Competition. It is intended to be performed with a small (20-22"), resonant bass drum played with a pedal. The bass drum maintains a pianissimo dynamic throughout the work, and the performer should stand while playing. The piece employs some of the rhythms found in Guy LeFevre's "Progressive Etudes for Snare Drum - vol.2", particularly embedded triplet figures and quintuplets over the half note. The bass drum is simply a reference point for the listener's ear.

March is dedicated to Alan Abel, an extraordinary percussionist whose performance and teaching has impacted so many.
