Medium-Easy Duet for Shared Marimba
by Colin Bell
Instrumentation: 1 marimba—low A*
*Includes options for enhanced performance on a 4.5-octave (low F) marimba
Colin Bell’s duet for shared marimba Friends, is a short but sweet piece which allows two players to come together and make music with minimal equipment requirements. All that is needed is a single marimba (4.3 or larger) and two musicians. The piece does not require virtuosity; however, it does require skills that any quality performance would need: expression, communication, artistry, and emotion. Friends ships in a full, bound score, and comes with a CD-ROM containing an audio recording, and individual parts available for printing. It also includes options for enhanced performance on a 4.5-octave (low F) marimba.
