Stormbreak. (for percussion octet (and optional wind ensemble)). By Jim Casella. Percussion Ensemble & Optional Wind Ensemble. For glockenspiel, xylophone, chimes, 4 timpani, bongos, congas, rainstick, vibra slap, suspended cymbal, woodblock, finger cymbal, snare drum, brake drum, hihat, ocean drum, 4 concert toms, cowbell, shaker, splash cymbal, china cymbal, tambourine, triangle, b (8 players). Medium-Easy. Score and parts on CD-ROM. 32 pages. Duration 3'30". Published by Tapspace Publications (TA.TSPCE-33). Stormbreak was written by Jim Casella for young/intermediate ensembles as a sort of sequel to Technology - another moderately simple piece for percussion octet by Casella that has since become quite popular. Opening with nature-effect sounds, the storm breaks into a rhythmic "tip of the hat" to Technology on the rim of the snare drum. As rhythmic layers add in, the syncopated motive of Stormbreak becomes clear and continues to drive the piece throughout. Certain parts can be more challenging than others, and syncopation is above the average beginner level. However, numerous repeat bars are used, as the primary goal is to develop players' ability to understand how their parts "groove" and interact within the mix of their fellow groove-playing compadres. For more advanced players in the ensemble, solo sections are included which feature timpani, snare drum, and concert toms. Stormbreak can stand alone as a percussion octet, but it also comes with the option of being played by a full wind ensemble. During wind ensemble concerts, the percussion section can sometimes be relegated to the back. So this option acts as something of a percussion ensemble "feature" that can be programmed into wind ensemble concerts. This piece comes with a full, bound folio containing a full score with wind ensemble, and a separate score for percussion ensemble only. Also included is a CD-Rom containing reference audio recordings and all individual parts available for printing.

Children's Medley (percussion sextet from Bach on Wood). By J.S. Bach/Albert Ellmenreich. Arranged by Brian Slawson. Percussion Sextet. For glockenspiel, xylophone, small marimba (4 octave), 5-octave marimba (low C), vibraphone, three timpani (32", 29", 26"), woodblock, triangle, 2 alarm clocks, drumkit, 3 cowbells, temple blocks, ratchet, siren whistle (6 players). Medium. Score and parts on CD-ROM. 10 pages. Duration 3'40". Published by Tapspace Publications (TA.TSPCE-30). Children's Medley is one of several masterworks arranged for percussion ensemble on the Grammy-nominated CD, Bach on Wood by Brian Slawson. This medley is comprised in three sections. The first two sections, Mussette in D, and Minuet in G, are both from J.S. Bach's, Notebook for Anna Magdalena (1725), a collection of pieces compiled by Bach for his second wife. Spinning Song (the third section of this medley), was composed in the mid-1800s by German composer Albert Elmenreich. Its familiar charm has been enjoyed by generations of piano hobbyists, young and old. Arranged for percussion sextet, each section presents a unique and distinctive sound. Much of its character is driven by the colorful orchestration and the variety of multi-percussion setups which require a careful balance of choreography in instrument and mallet placements. Done well, the showmanship built into Children's Medley will jump off the stage and into the laps of enthusiastic listeners. This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-Rom containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.
