To me, the fantastic music of the classical masters is in a totally different realm - there simply is no other music to compare it to. I believe it was a time in history that will never be repeated - kind of like when dinosaurs roamed the earth. In drumming to these timeless works as with any music, I always strive to treat the drums as a musical instrument - not just a noisy time keeper. I feel the music and drumming on MASTERS is not static – it’s alive… and I’m very excited to share it with you. These are some of my favorite composers with some of their most brilliant works. – Ted
