Description

Sometimes big things come in small packages, and this is definitely true of Espresso by Kyle H. Peters! Requiring only 3 toms, a bass drum, and a cymbal, its small footprint will make for a quick setup that packs a rhythmic, drummy punch. 

The energy of this piece comes from blend of a fast temop, hocketed rhythms, drum-to-rim textures, and extreme dynamic contrast. Espresso will serve as both a great performance work (especially as a concert opener, or interlude during state resetting) as well as an effective piece in which to train musical concepts with unpitched instrumentation.

Espresso ships as a printed, professionally bound score, and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or tablet viewing.

Instrumentation

3 toms (high-low)

Concert bass drum

Suspended cymbal*

*can be performed by bass drum performer or by a separate player
