Mallet Ensembles Vol. 3
Composer: Daniel Berg
Instrument: Percussion Ensemble
Duration: 15 min.
Daniel Berg has a great passion for teaching and a dream that more children and young people will find the melodic percussion instruments. In Mallet Ensembles the level is a little more difficult compared to his earlier booklets for Youth - Easy Solos, Easy Duets and Easy Marching Percussion. The hope with these scores is to awaken a curiosity and a bridge to the classical repertoire for mallet instruments, but also an encouragement to play music with each other!
These three songs are orchestrated for a couple of mallet instruments – to get a rich and ”fat sound”, please double each part on both marimba and vibraphone in several octaves.
Odenplan (three movements)
Let's Cruise again
Glockenspiel (or Crotales)
