This percussion ensemble arrangement of The Miraculous Mandarin is based upon three movements of Bartok's original work.

The Beginning - A challenging display of technique, timbral variety, and creative orchestration.

The Second Seduction - Featuring the vibraphones, this movement creates a rubato, tense beauty.

The Chase - A relentless conclusion which drives to the ultimate point of release.

James Ancona's arrangement will challenge performers and offers a programatic piece which will showcase the versatility of the percussion ensemble's timbral range. It was first performed by the Santa Clara Vanguard Percussion Ensemble in 2000.

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