Marimba Quartet | Grade 3 | 3'50"

Seeing the World (2015)

Seeing the World was written to be an accessible, yet musically rich intermediate-level marimba quartet. The piece was written while traveling on a double-decker bus with a grand view of the sunny countryside, and aims to capture the excitement and adventure of travel. Four players share two 4.3 octave marimbas, allowing the piece to be performed by those with limited instrumentation. The piece is constructed around a single sticking pattern and has few changing notes per measure, so performers can quickly get past the note-learning phase and start having fun and sounding good!

Marimba 1 (4-octave)
Marimba 2 (4.3-octave)
Marimba 3 (4-octave)
Marimba 4 (4.3-octave)

*May be performed on two 4.3-octave marimbas, Players 1 & 2 on one and Players 3 & 4 on the other.
