Written by Jason Baker for solo snare drum.
Written in three movements, Lonely City Suite is an outstanding new solo for concert snare drum. It requires a virtuosic approach to the instrument and demands a high level of technical proficiency towards extreme dynamics and touch. The first movement, "Another Day in the Back Bay," combines techniques found in many orchestral snare drum etudes and "groove-like" micro-temporal structures. The second movement, "Things Fall Apart," is intended to be a mixed-meter funeral march. The third movement, "Last One Out," is in short rondo form (A-B-A-C-A) with the content of the "B" and "C" sections consisting of expanding rhythmic cells. Lonely City Suite comes as a professionally bound folio, and is not available as downloadable merchandise.
