Symphonic Repertoire for Timpani: The Four Symphonies of Robert Schumann by Gerald Carlyss edited by Anthony J. Cirone.

ISBN 978-1-57463-191-3; $19.95.

Former timpanist of the Philadelphia Orchestra and former Indiana University Professor of Music, Gerald Carlyss has provided a comprehensive performance analysis for the timpani parts of the four Schumann Symphonies. His easy-to-understand explanations are based on countless performances under many of the world’s finest conductors. Due to the many errors and incorrect pitches contained in these symphonies, this work is of critical importance. The author states: “While a student at The Juilliard School of Music, I studied and learned the Schumann symphonies with Saul Goodman.” At the suggestion of many of the world’s finest conductors including Arturo Toscanini, Goodman made many changes to the timpani parts of Schumann’s symphonies during his long tenure as timpanist with the New York Philharmonic. These important changes and corrections are reflected in this edition that includes complete parts for practice and performance.
