Program Notes

"Fiesta Latina" is a percussion octet scored for the following instrumentation: solo drumset/marimba; percussion 1--marimba; percussion 2--marimba and metal shaker; percussion 3--vibes, triangle and agogo bells; percussion 4--xylophone, metal wind chimes, metal shaker, and samba whistle; percussion 5--five timpani (alternate four timpani part provided); percussion 6_light plastic shaker, agogo bells, and snare drum; percussion 7--metal wind chimes, tamborim and light plastic shaker. This eight-minute drumset/marimba solo feature could potentially be utilized not only for percussion ensemble concert but also as material for a junior or senior solo recital, on which the soloist would have a more comprehensive musical presentation. After a freely, almost rhapsodic introduction, "Fiesta Latina" features the soloist on drumset performing a samba with keyboard percussion accompaniment. Notation for types of sticks employed (such as switching from sticks to plastic brushes or Blasticks) are noted in the drumset part. The solo marimba part doubles the section marimba performer in a samba like "shout" chorus (two-mallet technique required). The marimba soloist then returns to drumset for the conclusion of the composition. This percussion ensemble feature will be appropriate for the younger collegiate percussion ensemble. David Mancini's "Fiesta Latina" is a great spin-off from his "Suite for Solo Drumset."
