Programme Notes / Performance Details :This is an excellent arrangement of an older baroque work for the percussion ensemble medium. The parts are not terribly challenging, however, many repeated sixteenth notes exist. These sixteenth notes can be challenging to line up, but are the composersí way of notating the string tremolos in the original part which would create the famous Mannheim crescendo that Stamitz (and the Mannheim School) was so well known for. The piece is in the traditional baroque symphonic form. There are no pedal markings for the vibraphone, however, if the vibraphone player pedals as the harmonies shift there should be no problem as the vibes carry much of the melody. This is an intermediate piece that would be an excellent way to expose your students to a form of music that they would otherwise not be exposed to except in the music history classroom. This piece could lead to some interesting discussions with you and your ensemble on Baroque performance practice. The piece would make an excellent addition to a high school, or undergraduate percussion ensemble program.
