Online Review

Fundamental Solos For Mallets is a 23-page book containing 11 original solos for intermediate marimba players. The solos are "Modo Nuovo," "Deserted Road," "3 + 6," "Musing," "Escapade," "Daybreak," "Louis Crab," "Adrift," "Dragonfly," "Sojourn" and "Chorale and Variations." Each solo is different from the others and contains a musical and technical challenge. There are two-mallet, three-mallet, and four-mallet solos. As the solos become more difficult, particularly in the four-mallet ones, the player is introduced to mallet independence. A four-octave instrument is needed. From the well-written solos to the easily read music, this excellent book is accessible to intermediate players, and more advanced players could use it for sight-reading. - John Beck April 2000[1]
