Description

Avalanche Lake by Patrick Speranza was inspired by a trip to Glacier National Park. Speranza was inspired by the views of the forest mountains that surround the park and the long waterfalls that he witnessed on a five-mile hike. The piece features a standard array of percussion instruments which can be found in most middle, and high school band rooms making it easily accessible to any music program. With upbeat ostinatos and catchy, light-heated melodic content, Avalanche Lake is a perfect compliment to any beginning percussion concert program!

Avalanche Lake comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.

Instrumentation

  • Glockenspiel
  • Vibraphone
  • Xylophone
  • 1-2 marimbas*— (1) 4-octave, (1) low A
  • 4 timpani
  • Drums (snare drum, bass drum)
  • Cymbals & gongs (crash cymbals (pair), suspended cymbal)
  • Accessories (tambourine, triangle, mark tree)

* If 2 marimbas aren’t available, this piece can be performed with 1 instrument with M1 and M2 sharing a low A instrument.
