Description

Geampara lui Petrescu by Czech composer Petr Pavlinec was originally written for a Taiwanese bamboo marimba called the zhuqin accompanied by two cimbalom players. Here in Erin Duke’s arrangement, which is reminiscent of classic xylophone rags, the zhuqin is replaced with a western xylophone and is accompanied by marimbas instead of cimbaloms. The music itself is very fast and incessant, with a contagious 7/8 feel throughout and features traditional Romanian scales.

Clocking in as just over two minutes, Geampara would be a flashy “encore” piece, or as an exciting concert piece to feature the xylophonist and requiring minimal stage setup.


This arrangement is playable with all 3 marimba parts sharing one 5-octave (low C) marimba. If available, two instruments can be used with Marimba players 1 & 3 sharing a 5-octave (low C) instrument and Marimba 2 using a 4.3-octave (low A).

Use of this product is governed by the license terms outlined here.

Instrumentation

Xylophone

1 marimba—(low C, shared by 3 players)

OR

Xylophone

2 marimbas—(1) low A, (1) low C
