Misc. Notes This is a re-typeset alternate triangle part which contains somewhat more useful timpani (as opposed to violin) cues. Most percussionists probably have their own (similar) part from orchestral excerpt books, but I am providing the part because I had typeset as a courtesy for the percussionists when I worked as an orchestra librarian, and thought it might be useful for others.
