Medium/Advanced Vibraphone and Marimba duet
By Jule Styne/Sammy Cahn; arr. Brian Blume
Instrumentation: Vibraphone, Marimba—low C
One of the best-selling songs of all time, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! was written in 1945 in Hollywood, California during one of the hottest days on record. Thanks to its seasonal lyrics and cheery, holiday feel, it’s commonly regarded as a Christmas song, but really, it’s a love song that never mentions Christmas.
Brian Blume’s arrangement for marimba and vibraphone uses unique random dead strokes to conjure the sounds and atmosphere of snow falling, from which the melody emerges. This is a truly unique spin on a seasonal classic.
Let It Snow! is provided as a professionally bound folio with individual parts contained on the included CD-ROM.
Purchase Brian Blume’s holiday album, Let It Snow for a recording of this arrangement, performed by Blume.
