Description

With the exception of one piano concerto and a small number of orchestral pieces, Russian composer Alexander Scriabin wrote exclusively for solo piano. Scriabin was just 15 years old when he composed this etude in 1887. In Etude in C# Minor arrangement by Brian Slawson, the main focus becomes how two players must become one through impeccable communication while fluctuating tempos and phrasing. Not for the faint of heart, this lyrical piece raises the bar for percussionists looking to break free from the confines of musical rigidity.

Instrumentation

  • Vibraphone
  • Marimba—low C
