Tragedy of a Young Soldier, The
Christopher D. Walker
Advanced Timpani Solo
The Tragedy of a Young Soldier by Christopher D. Walker is a haunting, programmatic work about a young, colonial-period man who is called off to war and subsequently dies on the battlefield. It is written for five timpani and also requires a gong. The suite is written in three movements: Soldier's Theme, Called to War, and The Aftermath. It requires a mature performer capable of technically demanding pedal work (particularly on the top drum), fast hands, and imagination! This piece ships as a printed, professionally bound folio with a full-color cover.
