Mallet Quartet Mallet Quartet (Glockenspiel, Vibraphone, 2 marimbas*--(1) 4-octave, (1) low A) - Easy


For mallet quartet. Composed by Brian Slawson. Percussion Ensembles. Folio & Parts on CD-ROM. Duration 3'00. Tapspace Publications #TSPCE-32. Published by Tapspace Publications (TA.TSPCE-32).

Brian Slawson's El Paso Waltz is written for beginning mallet ensembles so that each student in the quartet provides a specific function: The vibraphone carries the melody; One of the marimba players outlines the chords while the other supplies the bass; The glockenspiel, as is typical in a variety of settings, brings color to the arrangement.

If performed in a pleasant, light-hearted way, El Paso Waltz should demonstrate a carnival-like quality. This piece helps young players develop tremolo sensitivity and encourages eye contact, body language, and musical communication during slower tempos.

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

*If two marimbas aren't available, both marimba parts may be played by sharing one low A marimba.
