Brother for Solo Marimba and Piano
Composer: Tanja Hafenstein
Instrumentation: Marimba (4.3 octave, two mallets only) with piano & optional drum kit accompaniment
Grading: A.M.E.B. 2-3 | ABS 2-3 (Beginner/Intermediate)
An up-beat lyrical two mallet marimba solo. Brother has a rock-style structure with the melody being heard in many simple variations. This upbeat and engaging work allows the marimba to truly rock-on!
A complete recording of this work is available on the REVOLUTIONS compact disc.
Percussive Arts Society (USA) ‘Percussive Notes’ review (Joshua D. Smith)
"How about Billy Joel on marimba?.. The work is memorable and accessible from a melodic/harmonic standpoint and is sure to elicit compliments from audience members."
