Philip Glass: Concerto Fantasy for Two Timpanists and Orchestra: Mvt. 1 (5:30)
Wow! That was amazing! Good morning and welcome to Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to Nuno Coelho—and the Los Angeles Philharmonic!
My name is Ed, and today we’re going on a journey to explore some exciting music.
Are you ready to do that?
Let’s start with those drums in the back. They’re called timpani and are played by TYLER.
(TIMPANI 1 plays a short phrase on the drums and acknowledges the audience)

Concerto Fantasy for Two Timpanists and Orchestra is the music that began our concert today—
written by the American composer, Philip Glass. The music is full of rhythm and energy.
(TIMPANI 1 & 2 perform mm 13-16 of Concerto Fantasy - 10 seconds)
