Prelude and Fugue in B-flat Major (Bach/arr. Leigh Howard Stevens)

$8.00$9.00

A classic addition to any marimbist’s repertoire. The prelude is a virtuosic showpiece, and the three-voiced fugue highlights the separation of each voice by using different mallet types.

Prelude in G Major for Two Marimbas (C.O. Musser/arr. Yurika Kimura)

$17.00$20.00

It is assumed that each numbered opus from Clair Omar Musser consisted of 20 pieces, but there is no surviving evidence of them now. The version of Opus 11, Number 3, published in 1948, had some issues with the chords and expression markings. I made some corrections and consistencies in this new edition, but I tried to keep Musser’s notation intact as much as possible. -Yurika Kimura
