Advanced Vibraphone Solo
by Franz Schubert, arr. August Pappas
Franz Schubert’s musical style is a distillation of the Romantic Period—emotional, lyrical, and individualistic. August Pappas’ crafty arrangement of Schubert’s Impromptu No. 3 captures these aspects of Schubert’s music and makes them available for keyboard percussionists everywhere.
Originally composed in the unusual key of G-flat major, August has transposed it to C major to better function on a standard-ranged vibraphone. Because of the lyrical nature of this piece, great care must be taken while pedaling so that the long lines of this beautiful melody are not interrupted.
Impromptu No. 3 ships in a printed, professionally bound folio with a full color cover.
