50. Getting paid to hit things

YolanDa Brown joins timpanist Simon Carrington and percussionist Karen Hutt to discover the ins and outs of percussion playing in an orchestra.

From how you ‘play’ bubble wrap, to the complex and never ending task of tuning timpani…

Plus, an in depth discussion of one of the most important (and surprisingly difficult to play well) instruments in the orchestra: the triangle.

Produced by Tandem Productions for the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
