Description

Written to depict the Camino de Santiago, a 600-mile pilgrimage on foot through western Europe, The Camino by Michael Charles Smith is an intermediate marimba solo that captures the wistful nature of this amazing journey. Perpetuated by a relentless 16-note motive in 7/8 time, the piece requires an evenness in touch and tone from the performer so the melody speaks clearly without interrupting the underlying 16th-notes. This is a great piece for any developing performer looking to expand on their 4-mallet technique.

This piece ships in a printed, professionally bound folio with a full color cover.

Instrumentation

Marimba—low A
