Summary "Reicha's Die Harmonie der Sphären, a work scored only for eight-part chorus, strings, and timpani, appears at the end of the second volume of Reicha's Traité de haute composition musicale (1826) and was never published or copied elsewhere except in Carl Czerny's translation of the treatise in 1834. The work's most notable characteristic is its use of eight chromatically tuned timpani, divided among four timpanists, which at various points throughout the piece are rolled to produce sustained diatonic triads. These rolled chords not only provide support for the orchestra and choral parts but also serve to illustrate the sonorous motion of the planets and celestial bodies described in the text, taken from a poem by Ludwig Gotthard Kosegarten." -- Provided by publisher.
