Intermediate Masterworks for Marimba

$ 29.99

24 premiere recordings played by eight marimba virtuosi! During the past few years, marimbist Nancy Zeltsman has spearheaded an initiative to commission, publish and record the 24 new marimba solos included on this remarkable two-disc set compositions that could be performed by students and virtuosi alike. Zeltsman also wanted to encourage both leading and lesser known composers to participate, so that in addition to the works commissioned specifically for this project, a composition contest was held. The resulting 24 pieces cut a broad swath across a range of styles and generations, with composers including pop star Paul Simon, Third Stream legend Gunther Schuller, and Dutch minimalist, Louis Andriessen.



The recording’s exclusive focus on intermediary repertoire warrants its addition to the personal library of any percussionist interested in pedagogy and current marimba literature. Highly recommended.” - Vincent J. Novara, University of Maryland
