This unique recording, by timpani virtuoso Jonathan Haas and the Bournemouth Sinfonietta (directed by Harold Farberman), consists of three little-known Classical-period works that feature timpani in a solo role:
~Johann Fischer (1752-1807) – Symphony for Eight Timpani and Orchestra
~George Druschetzky (1745-1819) – Partita in C Major and Concerto for Oboe, Eight Timpani and Orchestra
These rare pieces, some of the earliest works prominently featuring the timpani as a solo instrument, deserve to be heard by all percussionists and Classical enthusiasts. To hear audio samples, click HERE. And, for purchasing information, click HERE.
