For glockenspiel, xylophone, 2 vibraphones, 2 marimbas (low A), 5 timpani, and multi-percussion (bass drum, snare drum, field drum, tambourine) (8 players). Concert Percussion Ensembles. Advanced. Score and parts. 16 pages. Duration 1'20". Published by Tapspace Publications (TA.TSPCE-02).

"The Devil's Dance" is a short animated movement from Stravinsky's famous theatrical work Histoire du Soldat. Originally written by Stravinsky for a small instrumental theater ensemble of two woodwinds, two brass, two strings, and one solo percussionist, Ancona has preserved the original intent of this piece in a concert percussion setting of eight players. Meter changes occur frequently while constantly shifting accents and dissonant harmonies give it a sinister and sarcastic tone.
