With an insightful foreword by Anthony J. Cirone, this incredible analysis of the timpani part to Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 provides valuable information on interpreting all Beethoven's symphonies. After 16 years as timpanist with the San Francisco Symphony and 32 years as solo timpanist with the New York Philharmonic, Roland Kohloff performed under every major conductor in the world. This one-of-a-kind study includes: 19-page movement-by-movement timpani part analysis; suggested note changes and additions by conductors like Arturo Toscanini; notated articulations and dynamics not in the original part; suggested stickings and mufflings; corrections of incorrect notation; the complete original timpani part; and the complete fully edited part.
