Description

Originally composed for solo marimba and wind ensemble, this version of Clifton Taylor’s Concertpiece has been orchestrated for percussion ensemble by Tapspace artist Jason Baker. In his arrangement, Baker disseminates the original wind parts to a quintet comprised of 4 mallet players (glockenspiel, vibraphone, 2 marimbas) and a drumset player. This allows for a much more stripped-down and intimate performance of Taylor’s original musical material.

The percussion accompaniment parts are playable by advanced high school students and are less challenging than the solo part. This arrangement is ideal for an advanced high school or undergraduate marimbist who is looking to showcase their chops and musical maturity!

Instrumentation

Glockenspiel

Vibraphone

3 marimbas—(1) 4-octave, (1) low A, (1) low C

Drum set (kick, snare, rack tom, floor tom, hi-hat, ride cymbal, crash cymbal)

Cymbals & gongs (suspended cymbal)

Accessories (cabasa, claves, triangle)
