Medium/Advanced Concert Percussion
by Bobby Lopez
Instrumentation: 2 tambourines (with heads)
Conversation for two tambourines is a fun duet for headed tambourines that showcases techniques (both commonplace and otherwise) often found in orchestral tambourine playing. The piece is a running dialog between the two players as they execute articulated grace notes, pianissimo rolls, thumb rolls, and a variety of articulations. Conversation brings to the forefront the complexity, control, and variety of techniques that are required to play this instrument well.
This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-Rom containing a reference video and all individual parts available for printing.
