      Part One starts focusing on relaxed movements of wrists, fingers and arms. From bar 19, the specific timpani sound is created by changing the mallets. Depending on the technical skills the players should try to play the left kettle drum with the left and the right with the right hand. Naturally, they can  decide to play hand by hand if the part can not be performed precisely with one hand.   

      Part Two puts emphasis on a differentiated playing of the roll.  The precise beginning or ending of a roll, with accent or without, the musical development of crescendo and decrescendo, the legato playing over several timpani or the speed of tremolo in different dynamic are some of the basics for a high level of musical articulation and sound. 

      Part Three: The rhythmic structures of the beginning are transferred to four instruments, which - in connection with pedal technique - widely extends the spectrum of motive playing. This part should be interpreted with a lot of pleasure and virtuosity. 

      Tones different from F, Db, Bb, F at the beginning have to be played by pedaling.
