Program Notes

Tyzik’s Concerto for Timpani was commissioned for (and premièred by) Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra Principal Timpanist Charles Ross. The concerto is a work in three movements. The first movement, Moderato e rubato, Allegro energico, follows the most traditional structure with a slow melodic opening followed by an energetic fanfare. The second movement, Rubato, Adagio (Tempo di Blues), pays homage to Ross and Tyzik’s jazz backgrounds, with the solo timpani part emulating a jazz bass line. The final movement, Allegro a la Afro Cubano, features Afro-Cuban and Asian influenced melodies with a solo timpani cadenza that leads into a call-and-response section with the percussion section.
