A timpani concerto written by a master timpanist is a rarity, indeed, and Kraft's Concerto No. 1 has become the go-to solo for timpanists who get to step out front. William Kraft was principal timpanist of the LA Philharmonic for 18 of his 26 years with the orchestra, assistant conductor for 3 of those years, and after his retirement served as its composer-in-residence for four seasons. During this latter period, he composed Concerto No. 1 for soloist Thomas Akins and the Indianapolis Symphony. With its 5 timpani set, the use of a variety of beaters and gloves expands the soloist's palette. The second movement is dedicated to Kraft's mother, who died during its composition; it is subtitled Poem for Timpani, Two String Orchestras, Celeste, and Percussion, and the strings are divided antiphonally. We are pleased to make this piano reduction available. ____________________________________________ On the back cover: Concerto No. 1 for Timpani and Orchestra William Kraft was principal timpanist of the LA Philharmonic for 18 of his 26 years with the orchestra, assistant conductor for 3 of those years, and after his retirement served as its composer-in-residence for four seasons. During this latter period, Krafts first timpani concerto was composed for soloist Thomas Akins and the Indianapolis Symphony. The concerto uses 5 timpani with a wide array of beaters, and the use of gloves with differing materials expands the soloists palette. The second movement is dedicated to Krafts mother, who died during its composition; it is subtitled Poem for Timpani, Two String Orchestras, Celeste, and Percussion, and the strings are divided antiphonally. ____________________________________________ See also the list and descriptions of More Music for Timpani by WILLIAM KRAFT on the back cover.  .
