by Felix Mendelssohn; arr. Brian Slawson

Medium/AdvancedConcert Percussion

12 Players

Mendelssohn composed the incidental music for Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the behest of King Frederick of Prussia while serving as music director at the Academy of Arts in Berlin. Now Brian Slawson brings forth a brilliant percussion arrangement of the Scherzo, a movement that underscores the antics of Puck, a clever jokester in the magical world of fairies. Written for a large mallet ensemble of 12 players, A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Scherzo contains a lot of notes in compound meter that require quick playing at soft levels. While challenging, it's also intended to remain light and playful throughout, with all dynamics being relative.

Instrumentation: • Glockenspiel • Chimes • 2 xylophones • 2 vibrpahones • 5 marimbas—(3) 4-octave, (2) low C
