This percussion ensemble arrangement of "The Miraculous Mandarin" is based upon three movements of Bartok's original work. The Beginning - A challenging display of technique, timbral variety, and creative orchestration. The Second Seduction - Featuring the vibraphones, this movement creates a rubato, tense beauty. The Chase - A relentless conclusion which drives to the ultimate point of release. This arrangement will challenge performers, and offers a programmatic piece which will showcase the versatility of the percussion ensemble's timbral range.
