Are you looking for a solo snare piece? This collection of 3 pieces is a wonderful addition to your repertoire. Originally written for the Atlanta Symphony Modern Snare Drum Competition, each movement ranges between 3 - 4 minutes and each would make a great addition to a concert, but all together they bring down the house.
TWO is a collection of 10 concert pieces for two-mallet marimba solo and a comprehensive guide to two-mallet technique and performance practice. This extensive book is a product of my mission to rejuvenate the art form and bring high level two-mallet performance to the concert hall. It is also, in many ways, the culmination of my 12+ years of research associated with two-mallet performance.
TWO features an extensive guide to technique and performance practice, 10 new concert pieces for two-mallet marimba solo, a CD recording of all compositions, and detailed TIPS for each piece with score examples and specific information on how to practice and perform virtually all major aspects of each piece!
This is a brilliant album... It serves as a symbol of the collaborative spirit, wondrously illustrating the fireworks that can happen when a leader finds the right material and the right musicians to help execute his vision.DOWNBEAT: EDITOR'S PICK
