An apotheosis is the highest or best part of something. This Apotheosis by Alan Keown elebrates the senior recital of the composer’s son and was written expressly for that purpose. Composed for two identical setups, each consisting of bongos, two toms, bass drum, brake drum, and three splash cymbals (shared by both players), this medium-advanced duet is mostly through-composed. It opens with a meter map in a three-bar grouping of 7/8 + 7/8 + 3/8, which some may recognize as the meter from the Yes song, Changes. It touches on a calmer, softer section and moves through a few metric modulations before culminating with a bombastic ending. 

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.
