Composed by Edvard Grieg, Anitra's Dance is preceded by In the Hall of the Mountain King in the famous Peer Gynt Suite. Originally scored for strings and triangle, and with a great deal of pizzicato playing in the strings, it allowed for a fairly seamlessly transfer to the idiom of percussion ensemble. The timbral palette is expanded by the addition of several nonpitched percussion instruments, and some of the melodic material has been enhanced by arpeggiated harmonies and rapid scalar passages, particularly in the marimba voice. The result is a lovely classical adaptation by Brian Blume that can serve as a quiet programming contrast.

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.
