Helble: Grand Duo Concertante

Grand Duo Concertante
(by Raymond Helble)

Grand Duo Concertante is a challenging work for two strong 4-mallet players performing on two 5-octave marimbas. The music is tonal, contrapuntal, impressive in its musical effect, and weighty enough to be a major recital or concert piece.

Beija Flor
(by Leander Kaiser)
