Description

Mendelssohn composed the incidental music for Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the behest of King Frederick of Prussia while serving as music director at the Academy of Arts in Berlin. Now Brian Slawson brings forth a brilliant percussion arrangement of the Scherzo, a movement that underscores the antics of Puck, a clever jokester in the magical world of fairies.

Written for a large mallet ensemble of 12 players, A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Scherzo contains a lot of notes in compound meter that require quick playing at soft levels. While challenging, it's also intended to remain light and playful throughout, with all dynamics being relative.

Instrumentation

  • Glockenspiel

  • 2 xylophones
  • 2 vibrpahones
