An Amazing Piece, Perfect for Recitals/Juries

Comments:

This is a series of 7 Marimba/Alto Sax duets that are based off of Bach-like chorale melodies. However, don't think that means that they're all slow pieces. A few of them are actually quite fast and challenging for both players. Also, all the pieces are very tonal (none of that random dissonance you hear all the time in marimba literature today) with exception to only maybe 3 or 4 bars in the whole set. All the movements combined last about 40 minutes of performance time, but some can be taken out by the players' discretion. An amazing piece, HIGHLY recommended for recitals and juries.
