Matt Drumm, timpani
Rossini – La gazza ladra overture
Ney Rosauro – Concerto for Timpani and String Orchestra
Haydn – Symphony No. 103 “Drumroll”
We ring in our new era with the loud snare drum roll of Rossini’s La gazza ladra (The Thieving Magpie) overture. The drum theme continues with our very own percussionist, Matt Drumm, performing a romantic timpani concerto by Brazilian composer Ney Rosauro, described as “[a] unique work that explores the lyrical potential of the timpani.” Haydn’s famous “drumroll” Symphony No. 103 concludes the concert.
