O Voo Da Mosca (Flight of the Fly) is Brazilian mandolin virtuoso Jacob Bittencourt's answer to Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee. Adapted by Stephen Primatic for four players on three marimbas (plus optional upright bass and maracas), the quick pace and driving 3/4 meter captures the essence of the original work beautifully, happily carrying the listener on a Brazilian carnival ride with all the whirling and twirling to be had!

Instrumentation

  • 3 marimbas—(2) low A, (1) low C
  • Upright bass (or other bass instrument)*
