Description

Grant Woolard’s Classical Music Mashup was originally arranged for six hands on piano. Here Tapspace artist Brian Blume cleverly adapts Woolard’s ingenious arrangement for a mallet sextet comprised of a glockenspiel & xylophone (1 player), 2 vibraphones, and 3 marimbas. By using the full range of mallet percussion keyboards, Blume gives his arrangement a wide spectrum of colors and allows for a full sounding ensemble.

In total, 57 works by 31 different composers are represented. Woolard’s creativity has resulted in milions of views on YouTube.  In addition to being wildly entertaining, this work serves as an excellent source of study, helping to familiarize students with approximately 300 years of Western music’s most memorable melodies.

2 vibraphones

3 marimbas—(1) low A, (2) low C*
