I have the following snare drum types requested in the score:
The logic seems to be the implied “voice” range, so I am trying to match them like this:
- tamburo soprano = S = aka tamburo piccolo = piccolo side drum (with snares, 10-13")
- tamburo alto = A = ?
- tamburo = T = tenor side drum (14-16" with snares)
- tamburo rullante = T = field side drum (14-16" no snares )
- (tamburo gr = B = Cassa)
I’m a little unsure if a standard concert snare or some other type of drum is meant for tamburo alto, and would appreciate any suggestion.
And also, is there a better way to assign the drums in this setup? Many thanks.
(The piece is only for percussion and strings).
