Helble-Well-Tempered Marimbist 1-M - Product Information
The Well-Tempered Marimbist (book 1) by Raymond Helble is a collection of twenty-four intermediate four mallet pieces in two sets. It's called the "Well-Tempered Marimbist" (WTM for short), because each of the pieces is in a different key, like Bach's "Well-Tempered Clavier". Each piece was written with specific musical and technical challenges in mind. They cover a wide variety of styles and forms - toccatas, arias, and dances in both homophonic and polyphonic settings. The pieces in each set can be combined into all manner of suites of different lengths. Book II is definitely a step or two above the first in terms of musical and technical complexity. Scored for 4.3 octave marimba.
