Marimba

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.

Mallet Palette

$20.00

“The variety of materials in each section make this a worthy composition, which is well within the level of an advanced high school or young undergraduate student.”-Percussive NotesThe composer’s taste for consonance and dissonance is evidenced by his playful bantering between pentatonic, chromatic, minor and major. Agogic and dynamic accents enhance colorful pops of dissonance that permeate the otherwise tonal realm and contribute to the intensity and forward movement. This piece ends where it began, with a finishing touch.

Not What I Expected

$42.00

A very effective, exuberant and joyful marimba quartet with echoes of Reich and Zimbabwe.”Players with a strong sense of rhythm and two-mallet technique are necessary for a performance of this piece. While the piece is not overly fast and choppy, note accuracy could be tricky in certain passages. A strong sense of already existing ensemble cohesion will make a performance of this piece especially successful.”- Percussive Notes
