Description

The fourth movement of Mahler's Symphony No. 5 is commonly known as the Adagietto and is arguably his most famous single piece of music. Herbert von Karajan once said that when you hear Mahler's Fifth, "you forget time has passed." In its original form, Adagietto is played by a full string orchestra.

In Jeffrey D. Grubbs arrangement, the keyboard percussion instruments aim to imitate this lush tapestry through ongoing tremolo with soft mallets and communicate Mahler's romanticism through sensitive restraint. This piece would be a satisfying addition to concert programs that wish to demonstrate the lyrical capabilities of percussion.

It comes with a full, bound score and includes all individual parts available for printing on the included CD-ROM.

Instrumentation

  • Vibraphone
  • 2 marimbas*—low A


*Each marimba is shared by two players. Alternately, four marimbas can be used.
