CrystalsItem nr.: TSPCE18-025
by Thomas R. Marceau
Thomas R. Marceau composed Crystals for young percussionists who have been living in a world of battery percussion and are now taking their first steps into mallet playing. Each performer is given a limited number of pitches on their respective keyboards so they can focus on the rhythmic complexity of the music. In addition to a keyboard instrument, each performer is given an additional auxiliary percussion instrument like a cymbal, a crystal glass, or a resonant metal. With this piece, Marceau helps bridge the gap between non-pitched and pitched percussion playing in a fun and engaging way!
Instrumentation: • Glockenspiel • Vibraphone (w/ mallets and bow) • 1-2 marimbas–(1) 4-octave*, (1) 4.6-octave (low E) • 2 cymbals • 2 resonant metals or glasses *Optional share with Marimba 2
