This percussion ensemble arrangement of "Alborada del Gracioso" recreates the colorful and vibrant work of Ravel's original. Originally written in 2001 and premiered by the Santa Clara Vanguard percussion ensemble, this arrangement will challenge performers and engage audiences with its accessible Spanish flair. The middle section features a soloistic marimba cadenza which utilizes advanced 4-mallet rotations and is answered by colorfully scored ensemble interjections.
