Description

Escape by Larry Lawless is an upbeat and fun medium-easy solo for a young marimbist. Because the melody of the piece is interspersed between so many double-vertical strokes, where all four mallets play simultaneously, the player must focus on voicing each chord so that the top note is clearly audible and connects to the surrounding notes of the melody. This is a deceptively difficult technical challenge that will test the player and develop their ear at the same time. Escape will also challenge the player’s sense of rhythm, as it features many syncopations and requires a strong sense of continuous groove.

Escape ships in a printed, professionally bound folio with a full color cover. This solo also appears in Sequential Studies Volume 2 by Julia Gaines.

Instrumentation

Marimba (4-octave)
