Mallet Keyboard Duet
by Béla Bartók, arr. Brian Slawson
Instrumentation: Glockenspiel, Vibraphone
Brian Slawson has brilliantly arranged these simple folk melodies for vibraphone and glockenspiel, making them accessible to young percussionists. Because of their traditional nature, these pieces are largely built on modes, which are a refreshing alternative to the typical study of major/minor scales. It also give students the opportunity to perform on the glockenspiel which is largely neglected in percussion pedagogy.
Three Romanian Dances comes with a full, bound score. It includes a CD-ROM with an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.
