Written in three movements by Jason Baker, 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.
