Description

Written for the Phantom Regiment percussion ensemble by Brian S. Mason, Rochambeaux was awarded first prize in the 2001 DCI percussion ensemble competition. The dominating 7/8 feel, flashy keyboard runs, and ethnic modalities drive the three distinct sections of this groove-based work.

As an option, an 11th player may be added as a featured marimba soloist. There is a separate part for this optional soloist which can be featured over an elongated treatment of the slower, middle phrase. Other solos may be traded among some (or all) other performers during the 6/8 African section ensuring that no two performances of this piece will ever be the same. Certain to garner audience appeal!

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.

Instrumentation

  • Crotales (1 octave)
  • 3 vibraphones
  • 3 marimbas—low A*
  • 4 timpani
  • Bass guitar
  • Drumset
  • 4 suspended cymbals
  • 2 gong drums
  • Accessories (djembe, vibra slap, mark tree, triangle, African claves, 2 shekeres, woodblock)

*An additional marimba can be used for lead/solo setup.
