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

$17.00$20.00

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.

Etude in Ab Major for Two Marimbas (C.O. Musser/arr. Yurika Kimura)

$18.00

Clair Omar Musser wrote numerous etudes as many marimbists know. It is assumed that each numbered opus consisted of 20 pieces, but there is no surviving evidence of them now. The version of Opus 6, Number 2 published in 1948 had some issues with the chords, as well as with expression markings like accents, staccatos, dynamics, etc. I made some corrections and consistencies in this new edition, but I tried to keep Musser’s notation intact as much as possible. Examining several of the original manuscripts helped clarify his personal approach to notation. – Yurika Kimura
