    This piece for rudimental snare drum and percussion quartet portrays the unbridled energy and limitless strength of the horse Shadowfax (from "Lord of the Rings.") The enterprising listener will find many representations drawn from this imagery – the traditional “gallop” rhythm (in many rhythmic forms), whip cracks, horse hooves, and an ever-increasing heart rate leading to labored breathing during a brief moment of repose.

    Program Notes
    Taken from J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” mythology, Shadowfax was a horse of Rohan, the chief of the Mearas. Like the other Mearas, Shadowfax was a grey or silver stallion and could understand the speech of Men. He was seemingly fearless; he could run faster than any other horse in Middle-earth. No one except Gandalf (the great wizard) could ride Shadowfax, and he was given to Gandalf by King Théoden. He would not tolerate a bridle or saddle, and carried Gandalf by his own choice. Shadowfax also carried the halfling Pippin at Gandalf's request.

    This piece for rudimental snare drum and percussion quartet portrays the unbridled energy and limitless strength of this imaginary character. The enterprising listener will find many representations drawn from this imagery – the traditional “gallop” rhythm (in many rhythmic forms), whip cracks, horse hooves, and an ever-increasing heart rate leading to labored breathing during a brief moment of repose.
