7. new wine
8. Gently, gently, I laughed
10. Joy of Christmas
11. When we waltz again
As you can already see from the titles, the waltz often plays in these works in combination with 4/4 time in alternation. When I was composing, I sometimes didn't agree on which bar to play, because I wrote down the pieces improvisationally via channeling while recording them live. That's why the 3/4 time waltz is also included in the 4/4 time notation, although I later switched to the 12/8 time (e.g. in Die Kür Mon Sir please) because this both the 4/ 4 bar, as well as the 3/4 bar better in combination.
All the classical works here can also be played in a small cast. There are almost always the voices: viola, bass, flute, oboe, brass/trombone/trumpet and timpani/percussion/drum kit. The piece Spektakullum is a bit out of the ordinary due to a special cast. Playing here as a trio, so to speak: cellos, horn and trombone.
In many pieces, for example, the bass plays with a 3-part violoncello. The other instruments also have chords notated with 3 voices, so that either double stops are played in the strings or arpetias, or 3 musicians actually play one voice per instrument from the chords.
For the piece "The waltz goes on, I'm cheerful about it" you would need for the full sound: 3 cellos, 3 violas, 3 flutes, 3 oboes, 3 trombones and a drum kit
Since some parts are doubled and only transcribed, it could also be played as a variant: 1 cello with double stops and 2 violas, 3 flutes, 1 trombone and 2 oboes plus drum kit.
The percussion voice is always notated as a drum kit Krid, ideally you would need a double bass drum that can be operated with two feet and a deep telling drum or possibly two differently tuned deep telling drums next to each other, the snare and two cymbals, two ride cymbals of different pitches and a crash the hi hat and two toms. I think that would be enough to play all drum kit voices. I've always played the drum kit part with 4 fingers, so that with clever division it can be played with two feet and two hands. The two bass drums that can be operated with the two feet could replace the two timpani and the two deep floor toms the slightly higher two different toms tones. Sometimes the snare is used as a final accent or as a drum roll. I often play two different notes on the cymbals. This could be done either with two hands and two ride cymbals or with the hi hat and a ride cymbal.
If the drum kit is too stressful or unfamiliar to play in this way, a very simple drum kit could suffice without double bass and double floor tom and just another percussionist playing with two timpani.
