Allegro Furioso was written specifically with BSP instruments in mind, however you can choose instruments with similar sound qualities/characteristics. While suggested BSP model #'s are listed below, the conductor must study the score for recommended timbre qualities.Percussion 1 - Tambourine TD3S Percussion 2 - Tambourine TC2S Percussion 3 - Tambourine TC1S Percussion 4 - Tambourine TD4S Percussion 5 - snare drum/ Pro Studio Percussion 6 - Tambourine TD2S Percussion 7 - Triangle 4" Artisan Percussion 8 - Triangle 6" Artisan Percussion 9 - Triangle 8" Spectrum Percussion 10 - Castanets PCC1 - RThis piece explores varying degrees of textures and timbres, beginning with the selection of instruments to be used. The desired products give the best representation of the sound qualities that I had in mind when composing. The piece was premiered with the 2010 McKendree University Percussion Ensemble.Performing at the bottom rung (bar) of the triangle gives the overtones that I had in mind. Performing the tambourine upside-down (head facing down), on the rim, gives the short and dry sound for which I am striving in the overall texture. Thumb/finger rolls give a different character than shake rolls, however shake rolls are also indicated (therefore, both are NOT interchangeable).
