Williams-Four Grotesques for Timpani-4T - Product Information

Four Grotesques for Timpani by David Williams expands the range of sound produced by four timpani (playing with four marimba mallets, playing on cymbals and crotales inverted on the drums) in music that is rhythmically challenging and melodically interesting. Besides, how many timpani pieces parody Mozart's 'Eine Kleine Nachtsmusik'? When was the last time you played a tone poem (however small) about monsters that grow out of that moldy yogurt in the back of your fridge?

Difficulty - Advanced
Instrumentation - 4 Timpani with cymbal, tam-tam and 4 crotales

Four Grotesques for Timpani

Comments:

I still like this piece, especially the movement with the timpanist playing with four marimba mallets (Mold Monsters in the Refrigerator) and the movement with crotales and cymbal played on the drums. I do appreciate the large number of timpanists who have played the piece and contacted me to let me know they have played it. I have a sequel of sorts now, Grotesques: Concerto for Timpani and Wind Ensemble which employs the four-mallet technique and some complex melodic pedal work.
