Sejourne-Nancy-M - Product Information

Nancy by Emmanuel Sejourne is a short work for solo marimba. A very quiet work, Nancy never gets louder than mezzo-forte. The piece allows for a very liberal tempo. This is a gorgeous piece of music by one of the masters of marimba. The piece is a moderately difficult one, requiring some advanced techniques such as independent rolls.

Nancy Review

Comments:

I'm a high school student at West Salem and after listening to a former teacher of mine demonstrate it to our Front Ensemble (Marching Band), the piece really stuck with me and felt that I needed to play it for a solo. I haven't purchased it yet but I plan on it soon. I love pieces that don't have any loud bits throughout, and I resonate because I'm a quiet guy myself. I've heard so many different people play this beautiful marimba solo and listening to separate variations of Nancy makes the solo more enjoyable to listen.
