Description

Initially written for the double bass by the beloved Italian opera composer Gioachino Rossini, Brian Slawson‘s arrangement of Teardrop for solo vibraphone captures the wistful romance of Rossini’s original. Slawson chose to arrange the piece on vibraphone specifically for its “magical bell-like quality” and to give percussionists the opportunity to focus on musicality and shaping lyrical phrases. The pedaling, mallet dampening, and motor choices are left to the discretion of performer, which allows younger players the chance to show off their creativity and allow their individual voice to be expressed.

The sheet music for the piano accompaniment part is provided. In addition, “piano-only” audio files (in three different tempos) are provided in case the soloist doesn’t have access to a live accompanist.

Teardrop ships as a full, bound score with a color cover and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.
