Description

Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik is a quintessential piece from the Classical Period. It combines all of the tropes of that time: very stable harmonies with very clear resolutions, a strong sense of melody and accompaniment, and a very clear and easily digestible large-scale form. Mix that with an unforgettable melody and you’ve got a recipe for posterity, which in Mozart’s case has lasted for about 230 years. Mark Hunter has thoughtfully arranged Mozart’s seminal piece for mallet percussion quartet, making this piece available to young percussionists everywhere. 

Instrumentation

Xylophone

2 or 3 marimbas–(1) 4-octave, (1) shared low A or (2) 4-octave, (1) low A
