Classic Mallet Trios Volume 1 contains four classics arranged for marimba (two players) and vibraphone. Bizet's delightful Habanera from "Carmen" and J.S. Bach's soothing Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring are two of music's most revered masterpieces. In addition, Handel's Adagio and A. Scarlatti's rhythmic Folia provide challenging contrasts in styles for percussionists. Classic Mallet Trios Volume 2 features four classics arranged for marimba, vibraphone and orchestra bells. These contrasting, stand-alone perennials also work collectively as a four-movement presentation. Mouret's Rondeau is one of the most performed fanfares in music, while Handel's Sarabande is a popular study in theme and variations. Vivaldi's Autumn from The Four Seasons always charms, and Handel's festive Hornpipe has thrilled music lovers for centuries. Wonderfully suited for solo and ensemble applications, these versatile gems will also thrill audiences in concert settings!
