Baker-Lonely City Suite-SD - Product Information

Written in three movements, Lonely City Suite by Jason Baker is an outstanding new solo for concert snare drum. It requires a virtuosic approach to the instrument and demands a high level of technical proficiency towards extreme dynamics and touch.

The first movement, "Another Day in the Back Bay," combines techniques found in many orchestral snare drum etudes and "groove-like" micro-temporal structures. The second movement, "Things Fall Apart," is intended to be a mixed-meter funeral march. The third movement, "Last One Out," is in short rondo form (A-B-A-C-A) with the content of the "B" and "C" sections consisting of expanding rhythmic cells.

Piece With Different Approaches

Comments:

At Central Methodist University, there is a recital called the American Music Recital, involving Phi Mu Alpha and Sigma Alpha Iota. It's not until April, but I was determined to get this piece worked up when I watched the video of my private teacher from high school playing it at MMPAT (Mid-Missouri Percussion Arts Trophy). Once I looked at it the first couple of times, I started analyzing it, writing stickings down, determing which sticks and grip to use for each movement, etc..... As mentioned, the second movement feels like a funeral march. I would highly suggest players using some Cooperman 5 concert sticks and playing with traditional grip because that grip is appropriate when you play something in the mood of a march. In otherwords, it's like your in the military band. If you feel like you can face the challenge of playing funky beats at 85 beats a minute, playing in 7/8, and playing your rear end off at 190 beats a minute, give this one a try. Before performing it, work on it with your private teacher. His/her opinions can determine your interpertation on it.
