Three Dances for Solo Timpani was written in 1998 and dedicated to percussionist Neil Grover. The dances can be performed as individual solo works or together as a suite. Melodic intervals and timbre contrasts provide color for each dance. Subtle ambiguity in rhythm, pulse, and pacing create a challenge for the performer and listener. The composer was influenced by several different styles and periods of music in the writing of "Three Dances.".
