THE CARNIVAL OF VENICE for Mallet Duet
arr. Logan O. Moore
This theme and variations on the very well known tune is far from the most difficult of the many arrangements that have been written for nearly every musical instrument, but for only moderately advanced mallet players it is a real winner! Part 1 requires two mallets and a bit of technical skill, while Part 2 requires easy 3 or 4 mallet accompanying skills. Also Part 2 could, if desired, be easily played by a keyboard instrument (piano, electronic instrument, etc.) rather than a mallet instrument.

MERGE
Zachary M. Koors

A duet for two marimbas that is upbeat, fun to play, pretty and useable for a wedding ceremony. The syncopation and rhythmic exchange is reminiscent of the dance like quality of marriage, as two people are moving through life together in a cohesive unit. The last note, to be left unresolved, communicates that a wedding is merely the beginning to a life-long commitment. The piece is written for two players on 5.0 octave instruments with 4 mallets each. Listen to a full recording below. Click on You Tube to see a performance.
