Adventures of Ivan (Khachaturian/arr. Leigh Howard Stevens)

Price: $15.00

Product Information

A charming set of six intermediate level works. The musical style is unique in the marimba repertoire: Soviet influenced pictorialism with an Armenian flavored chromaticism. The languid melody of the first movement is a near-perfect independent roll study. This collection is included on the CD Marimba When and available as part of the sheet music collection of all pieces from Marimba When.
