This book contains a selection of famous classical pieces that have been carefully adapted for the marimba. Composers such as Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Vivaldi, Rimsky Korsakov and Clementi are all included. The book enables marimba players with reasonable playing experience to perform these splendid masterpieces. The pieces are ordered by difficulty and, with the exception of a few pieces at the end of the book which require four mallets, are all playable with two mallets. Musical style and good technique are essential for a good performance. In addition to making wonderful concert pieces the exciting arrangements in this book will also make a most useful teaching tool.
