Description

John Willmarth’s timpani solo And They’re Off was inspired by the Keeneland Racecourse in Lexington, KY. The thematic material is derived from the iconic “Call to the Post” bugle call, typically heard 5 to 10 minutes before the start of a horse race. As John advises, players should strive to create an exciting and energetic performance throughout. He also recommends using an articulate mallet to provide clarity on denser rhythmic passages.

This solo can also be found in The Blue Book - Volume 3 along with other timpani solos as well as drumset, mallet keyboard, and snare drum solos.
