Description

Matt Altmire’s exciting and fast-paced percussion ensemble piece Escape Route features two timpanists who are supported by six percussionists. The timpanists share a full set of four drums, with the first timpanist (stage left) playing the 23” and 26” drums, and second (stage right) playing the 29” and 32” drums. With the drums orchestrated this way, the players often split parts and, if executed well, are able to sound like one cohesive timpanist.

The six accompanying parts are comprised of standard percussion instruments, which can be found in any band room, such as bass drum, cymbals, snare drums, tambourine, and triangle. This is a perfect way to showcase two performers and begin or conclude a percussion concert on a fun, energetic note!

Escape Route comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.

Instrumentation

4 timpani*

Drums (2 snare drums**, concert BD)

• Concert BD

• Tambourine

Triangle

Crash Cymbals

*Split between two players. One player uses the 23" & 26" drums, the other uses the 29" & 32" drums.

**A small tom-tom may be substituted for one of the snare drums.
