Dedicate the piece to your timpani player and add the first name of the timpanist to the title of the piece. This piece was written to feature a timpani player who is in the very early stages of learning the instrument and who wants to perform for the first time with their esteemed musician friends. I wrote the piece for Ellis Landau, a wonderful friend and supporter of the Las Vegas Philharmonic. Titled FOR ELLIS, Ellis premiered the piece alongside his distinguished friends from the Phil at a gala event on March 29, 2023. It was his first time performing on stage and before the premiere, did not have a musical background.
The timpani player (for whom this piece was written) did not read music. In lieu of the standard notation, I created a chart of numbers for the player. I also conducted the premiere in order for him to follow all of my cues and know when to play.
