Description

The Devil's Dance is a short animated movement from Stravinsky's famous theatrical work L'Histoire du Soldat. Originally written by Stravinsky for a small instrumental theater ensemble of two woodwinds, two brass, two strings, and one solo percussionist, James Ancona has preserved the original intent of this piece in a concert percussion setting of eight players. Meter changes occur frequently, while constantly shifting accents and dissonant harmonies give it a sinister and sarcastic tone.

The Devil's Dance is published as a saddle-stitch bound score, with a color glossy cover! Individual parts are included.

Instrumentation

  • Glockenspiel
  • Xylophone
  • 2 vibraphones
  • 2 marimbas—low A
  • 5 timpani
  • Multipercussion (snare drum, field drum, bass drum, tambourine)
