Marimba

Album for the Young I (Schumann/arr. Leigh Howard Stevens)

$12.00

Marimba music doesn’t get much heavier than the second half of this set. Even the light and simple movements such as Soldier’s March and Wild Rider have a certain Germanic seriousness.

Asturias (Albeniz/arr. Leigh Howard Stevens)

$12.00

This familiar work of Spanish composer Isaac Albeniz is best known to concert audiences in its guitar transcription. Rather than base his transcription on one of the many guitar editions, Stevens went back to the original piano work which appears in Cantos de Espana Op. 232.

Children’s Corner (Debussy/arr. Leigh Howard Stevens)

$18.00

Although the marimba’s tone is colorful and evocative, there has been a long standing lack of serious transcriptions of impressionistic music. This faithful transcription will fill that niche and surely become a standard repertoire item.

Concerto for Marimba & Orch. Piano Reduction

$40.00

Winner of what may have been the earliest marimba composition contest ever held, the Sarmientos was premiered by Vida Chenoweth in 1957. A three-movement work of great vitality with Guatemalan-influenced rhythms and melodies, it is performable by any good collegiate marimbist.
