Comments:

Yes, I know that the Bach Cello Suites have been around for centuries and there are countless editions of them available. But, until the Stevens edition, there has been nothing of value for the marimbist to use as a serious performance reference. This is the single best edition available and the level of research and accuracy is considerable. Since the addition of the now standard 5 octave marimba, a source like this has been lacking. This should be a requirement for every college percussion major.
