Terms Use in Percussion: Carmen Suite and Carmina Burana by Michael Rosen (May 2011 Percussive Notes)

Jul 14, 2022, 07:00 AM by Rhythm Scene Staff

According to Michael Rosen, “The notation and instrument choice problems in ‘Carmina Burana’ pose some of the most difficult in the literature.” Based on questions from Todd Sheehan (at that time principal timpanist with the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra), the Quincy Symphony Orchestra, and Illinois University, Rosen provides valuable information for two significant percussion works in the orchestral canon.

This article from the May 2011 issue of Percussive Notes is one of many “Terms” articles compiled by Michel Rosen. We’ll be highlighting more of these valuable resources in future R!S Blog Throwback Thursday posts.
