Strikes and Resonance

$15.00

Bahr’s highly idiomatic writing simultaneously exploits both the marimba’s articulate and resonant capabilities. The player needs a 5.0 octave instrument and strong technique. (Intermediate to Advanced)

Stroboscope

$14.00$17.00

Unmistakably Sweet Sammut. If you know the Rotations or Cameleon, Stroboscope is similarly “French” in its style and harmony, but a smidge easier than Rotations 1 and 3.

Styles

$12.00

An interesting three-movement work that puts the player through various musical styles. The first movement is rhythmic and fast . The second movement is soft and flowing in a chorale style. The last movement is a study in changing meters.

Suite for Marimba

$15.00

Composed in 1950, Fissinger’s “Suite” is the first polyphonic work for unaccompanied marimba, combining both traditional tertian and quartal/quintal harmonies to evoke introspection, anticipation, panic, and serenity.

Surge

$8.00

This energetic piece gives marimbists the opportunity to show off their octaves, as they permeate the wild and sometimes “raucous” texture. There are also plenty of opportunities to exercise musical expression, especially during the chorale.

The Butterfly

$8.00

An evocative short, somewhat virtuositic work which is great as a change of pace in a recital program or as an encore. Programmatically depicts the flight and demise of a butterfly. Very effective.
