Description

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Sonata No. 16 in C major, K. 545 is one of the most iconic pieces in all of classical music. It exemplifies all of the major aesthetic aspects of the classical period: clear melodies with simple accompaniments and uncomplicated forms, immediately accessible to the listener. 

Daniel Lesieur’s arrangement of this sonata affords percussionists the opportunity to engage with this seminal work via the marimba duo. All three movements, I. Allegro, II. Andante, and III. Rondo (Allegretto), are available in one collection for aspiring marimbists, and may be performed either on 1 or 2 instruments.

Instrumentation

 1-2 marimbas–(1) 4.3-octave (low A), (1) 5-octave (low C)*

*Playable on a 4.5-octave (low F) with substitutions. Also, both players may share the lower marimba if necessary.
