MalletWorks Masters
Percussion Ensemble

MalletWorks is now pleased to offer three great pieces from three mallet greats, all for percussion ensemble. They are all a part of a ever growing series called the MalletWorks Masters Percussion Ensemble Series. Here are three new works for percussion ensemble of music written/recorded by Mike Maineiri, David Friedman, and Dave Samuels.

David Friedman

Malletworks Masters Percussion Ensemble Series

"20 Minutes Off The Pavement" is the only work by David Friedman for Percussion Ensemble. A "fusion" style piece which includes electric bass and drumset parts, it is a challenging 20-minute work with great compositional depth and a variety of sound colors - including roto toms. There is a separate Vibes soloist part, and plenty of optional room for improvisation in a variety of textures. A wonderful piece, and a welcomed addition to the MalletWorks catalog.

20 Minutes Off The Pavement $44.00   

Dave Samuels

Malletworks Masters P. E. Series

Dave Samuels has crafted a new arrangement for MalletWorks called "One Step Ahead." With his trademark fusion of Afro-Cuban groove and melody, this piece is sure to be welcomed by ensembles of all levels. "One Step Ahead" is the first cut on the latest CD "Paraiso" by Samuel's band The Caribbean Jazz Project. "Parasio" can be found on this site on this page by clicking here for the CD section.

Mike Mainieri

Malletworks Masters P. E. Series

Percussion Ensemble music by Mike Mainieri? What? Can this be? That's right! The Steps Ahead classic "Oops" has been arranged for percussion ensemble by Jeff Moore. What a great tune with great writing! The arrangement is full sounding and includes a solo written by Arthur Lipner for those who prefer to read than to improvise. This piece sounds great, and feels great for the band and the audience.

Concerto for Vibraphone and Orchestra by Christopher Brooks (Piano Reduction - Rental Parts available on request.)
Christopher Brooks, an accomplished LA-based film composer and Music Supervisor (and ex-vibes student at Berklee), has created an enjoyable medium-level addition to the repertoire. "Concerto For Vibraphone and Orchestra" is a hauntingly lyrical work that was commissioned the Southeastern Ohio Symphony Orchestra and was premired in 1999 by William Lutz, percussionist with the Columbus (Ohio) Symphony Orchestra. There are three movements: "To Dream", "To Live", and "To Die."

The work follows a fast-slow-fast format from movement to movement. The first movement also contains and optional cadenza. The performer must be somewhat proficient with four mallets. The movements are bound together through the use of C Lydian/G Major in the first movement, G natural minor in the second, and C natural minor resolving to C Major in the third. Dampening, stickings and pedaling are left to the discretion of the performer.



"Two Mallet Fixers for the Perspicacious Percussionist" by Andrew Reamer. - 16 Reading and Technical exercises, w/ demonstration cd.

"Reamer's Elixirs is a delightful remedy for the growing void in keyboard percussion training. Perspicacious percussionist Andrew Reamer has shown acute perception in discovering the missing link------two mallet technical skills. These varied style studies will turn your two mallet playing into gold!" --Christopher Lamb, Principal Percussion New York Philharmonic.
