Valse Brilliante Op. 34, No. 2 (Chopin/arr. Jeremy Muller)

$10.00

Bringing Chopin’s intimate and quasi-improvisational work to the warm sound quality of the modern marimba is an innate marriage. One can only wonder what he would have written for the marimba if he had access to the knowledge, pedagogy, and instrument of today. But this arrangement may give us a glimpse of this by illustrating an introspective mood for marimba. Valse Brillante is an alluring work emphasizing the sumptuous features of the marimba.
