In 1880, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908), known for his symphonic works, Scheherazade, Capriccio Espagnol, and the Russian Easter Festival Overture, became enthusiastic about a fantastic story told by Russian playwright Ostrovsky entitled The Snow Maiden. Shortly after this, Nikolai composed his most famous opera by the same name.

Playful, lively, and fast-paced, Lewis Norfleet’s percussion arrangement of Dance of the Tumblers from the The Snow Maiden requires lightness, buoyancy, and ensemble awareness from its performers. The arrangement is written for 13 medium-to-advanced players with most mallet parts designed to be played with two mallets. In 2/4 throughout, it's good, happy fun for mom and dad as long as the kiddos don't bang too hard!

This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-Rom containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.
