November 19, 2000 in Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center in New York (U.S.A.) by Jonathan Haas and Svetoslav Stoyanovby with the American Symphony Orchestra conducted by Leon Botstein.
Jonathan Haas approached me almost ten years ago with an invitation to write a Timpani Concerto for him. It seemed we were in agreement to begin our project when a series of operas and symphonic commissions led to a series of postponements. Now, years later, the work is finally completed, a three movement concerto with cadenza. It has also grown into a “double” concerto requiring two timpanists playing a total of nine timpani between them.
