“Rudimental Rumble” was originally written for 12 percussionists in South America on a tour with the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra. At the time I had 12 students at the university and everyone wanted to be included in this piece.

3 snare drums – 3 tenor drums – 2 sets of quads – 2 bass drums & 2 cymbal players

My publishing company in the US requested a 6 player version and so I rewrote the piece for

1 snare drum – 1 tenor drum – 2 sets of quads – 1 bass drum & 1 cymbals player

A former student of mine, now principal percussionist of the WDR Radio Symphony Orchestra in Cologne Germany, Johannes Steinbauer -
who performed the original 12 piece version requested a “duet” of Rudimental Rumble for a percussion concerto evening broadcasted at the WDR in Cologne. Now here it is “RUDIMENTAL RUMBLE DUET”

A flashy rudimental explosion with “back sticking” – “clickity-click” and challenging rhythms guaranty an exciting visual and aural concert.
