Description

Inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic book Treasure Island, John Herndon brings us Mutiny! a seaworthy tale of adventure for young percussionists.

Mutiny! is equal parts drum and keyboard-driven, scored so that the twelve players remain active throughout. Set to a moderate tempo, Herndon employs eighth-note triplets and occasional quarter-note triplets to conjure the iconic seagoing feel, making the work a solid study on these rhythms in a fun context. And at right around three minutes in length, the piece will make for an exciting closer in your next concert.

Mutiny! ships as a fully bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for either printing or tablet viewing.
