Description

This piece by Dustin Schulze is neither a real tango, nor does it have anything to do with actual raspberries. But it’s tasty and might make you want to dance a little. Written for four marimbas (2-mallets each), Raspberry Tango is a short, light, and entertaining piece which utilizes counterpoint and syncopation to create a colorful fabric of marimba texture. It would work great as an interlude between larger works in percussion concerts, or on its own as a way for mallet players to practice blending within a small ensemble. 

This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.

Instrumentation

  • 4 marimbas—(3) low A, (1) low F
