Composer's notes: The material for Three Symphonic Dances for Solo Snare Drum is derived from 3 orchestral snare drum excerpts that are among the most requested works placed on audition lists for percussion vacancies in professional orchestras. The first movement is based on "The Birth of Kije" from Prokofiev's Lt. Kije Suite; the second movement is based on "Giuoco Delle Coppie" from Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra; the third movement is from material in "Movement III" and "Movement IV" from Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade Symphonic Suite. Realizing that there are traditional and regional interpretations of the snare drum excerpts from these masterworks, performers should feel free to take stylistic liberties.
