Description

Recalling the film scores of spaghetti westerns from such composers as Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota, Brian Slawson’s Pistoleros is a tribute to the old time gunfighters of Mexico. In it, Slawson depicts the build up and earthshaking climax of an anxious, tension-filled battle. Because of the amount of space and stately tempo, Pistoleros is a great opportunity for young players to develop their sense of rhythm and their sense of ensemble cohesion.

Pistoleros ships in a full, bound score with a color cover and a CD-ROM containing an audio recording and individual parts for printing.

Instrumentation

Xylophone

1 marimba—4.3-octave (low A)

2 timpani

Drums (snare drum, bongos, 2 concert toms, bass drum)

Cymbals & gongs (pair of crash cymbals, tam-tam)

Accessories (vibraslap, temple blocks)
