term: DRUM = modern drum set
Let's talk about Drum again. Here the premise:
Music we know are elements like, melody, harmony , rythms. While classical music success very much in melody and harmony, but rythms part is less exploit by its respective instrument. We got less Trio for Piano, cello AND TIMPANI for example to speak.
Also less rythms part become central of the composition. Instrumental speaking, less having a 'Concertos', 'sonata', etc. I know timpanis are one I found enjoyed this rule, some examples :
Kraft Timpani Concerto
Glass Concerto Fantasy for Two timpanist & orchestra
Moving on, today's modern drum is ALSO less used in contemporary classical music. Here are some videos showing people try to drumming classical pieces, means that actually drum can integrated to classical music. Most example here were done in rock style, but I am sure serious composer can compose a nice Drum score for it.
Rondo alla turca
Marriage of Figaro
Symphony No.5 Beethoven
So is drum one of 'uncompatible' instrument for classical music?? Drum is a successfull instrument in most non classical music. I know I mixed a lot of thing in one post, I just want to see what classical-orientated people thinks about the present of drum in classical music.
