Classic Mallet Trios contains four classics arranged for marimba (two players) and vibraphone. Bizet's delightful "Habanera" from Carmen and J. S. Bach's soothing "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" are two of music's most revered masterpieces. In addition, Handel's "Adagio" and A. Scarlatti's rhythmic "Folia" provide challenging contrasts in styles for percussionists. Wonderfully suited for solo and ensemble applications, these versatile gems will also thrill audiences in concert settings.
"This collection of tasteful arrangements would be good for high school solo and ensemble festivals, concert prelude or lobby music, or even useful for more advanced percussionists looking for accessible gigging or background music."
