Marimba

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

Old Man Jazz (Gene Quaw/arr. Yurika Kimura)

$21.00$24.00

Old Man Jazz was composed (both music and lyrics) by Gene Quaw, and published in 1920 by Jos. W. Stern & Co. The original sheet music has the subtitle “An Eccentric Fox Trot Song.” The All Star Trio (George Hamilton Green, xylophone, F. Wheeler Wadsworth, tenor saxophone, and Victor Arden, piano) recorded a very clever version of the piece for Victor Records (#18699) in 1920. This transcription arrangement is based on the All Star Trio recording, with reference to the original sheet music.

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
