    Beyond Civilization. Be respectful of artists, readers, and your fellow reviewers. The 18th-century composer Johann Fischer wrote a symphony for eight timpani and orchestra, which requires the solo timpanist to play eight drums simultaneously. In his Overture to Benvenuto Cellinifor example, Hector Berlioz realizes fully voiced chords from the timpani by requiring three timpanists and assigning one drum to each. The increase in timpani size, covered timpani mallets, and thinner timpani heads increased the quality of timpani tone; therefore, today's timpanist's need not be entirely concerned with playing with very articulate sticks. However, many professional timpanists prefer skin heads because they produce a "warmer" timbre.

    The greater part of the book is devoted to the interpretation of Baroque and Classical orchestral and choral music. The 18th-century composer Johann Fischer wrote a symphony for eight timpani and orchestra, which requires the solo timpanist to play eight drums simultaneously. Professionals may also use exceptionally large or small chain and cable drums for special low or high notes. They are physically connected either to the counterhoop, in which case the gauge indicates how far the counterhoop is pushed down, or the pedal, in which case the gauge indicates the position of the pedal. Occasionally, timpanists use the pedals to retune while playing.

    Meredith Music Publications. There have been other timpani concertos, notably, Philip Glassconsidered one of the most influential composers of the late 20th century, [26] wrote a double concerto at the behest of soloist Jonathan Haas titled Concerto Fantasy for Two Timpanists and Orchestrawhich features its soloists playing nine drums a piece. Laudermilch, Kenneth. Meticulously drawing on original sources and authoritative scores from the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries, Schweizer convincingly demonstrates that timpanists were capable of producing a broader range of timpani tone earlier than is normally supposed. In exhaustive sections on Bach, Handel, Haydn, and Mozart, Schweizer takes the reader on an odyssey through the interpretation of their symphonic and choral music. In so doing, he discusses the importance of timpani bowl type; mallets; playing style; physical gestures; choice of drums; mallet grip; legato, marcato, and staccato strokes; playing different parts of the timpano head; and psychological openness to the music in effectively shaping and coloring timpani parts.
