      Easy Duets Volume 2 contains five easy duets for any combination of 2 mallet instruments such as the vibraphone, xylophone or marimba. All five duets use a 3-octave range from F to F. The duets can be played on the same instruments however, it is preferable for part 1 to be played on vibraphone and for part 2 to be played on marimba. 

      The duets can also be played as ensemble pieces. Double each parts depending on the number of players and instruments available. Pieces such as Flyin’, Saturday Morning and Hope to see you again is very well suited with the addition of bass and/or drums (bass part can be found at the end of the booklet).

    • Daniel Berg is a Swedish composer, musician and professor in classical percussion. He combines the role of writing music with being a versatile musician and teaches solo percussion and chamber music at the University College of Music in Gothenburg, Stockholm and Örebro in Sweden. 

      In his passion to promote the marimba as a solo- and chamber music instrument, Daniel has worked intimately with a number of composers who have written original music for the instrument. This includes more than 250 world premieres for solo and chamber works. Daniel Berg is an artist of Bergerault Marimbas and Elite Mallets. 

      As a composer Daniel has written a lot for percussion published by Edition Svitzer like his Kroumata for percussion sextet, Images for Percussion Duo and Yán Jiāng (Magma) for solo marimba - a commission from the Taiwan World Percussion Competition 2020.

    • Daniel Berg’s mallet duets is just what you need as a percussion teacher. The music Daniel writes fulfilled a huge gap in percussion litterature, it’s inspiring for both teachers and students to work with this material. The music connects old traditional music with more modern music that sounds familiar to the student. If I could recommend one composer for bringing out mallet music it must be Daniel Berg, his music is inspiring juvels that you can´t miss.
