In 1880 Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908), known for his symphonic works Scheherazade, Capriccio Espagnol, and the Russian Easter Festival Overture, became enthusiastic about a fantastic story told by Russian playwright Ostrovsky entitled The Snow Maiden. Soon thereafter, Nikolai composed his most famous opera by the same name.

Playful, lively, and fast-paced, Lewis Norfleet's percussion arrangement of Dance of the Tumblers from the The Snow Maiden requires lightness, buoyancy, and ensemble awareness from its performers. The arrangement is written for 13 medium-to-advanced players with most mallet parts designed to be played with two mallets. In 2/4 throughout, it's good, happy fun for mom and dad as long as the kiddos don't bang too hard!

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.

/ *If there is a fifth marimba available, the marimba 4 part may be double. If there is a third vibraphone available, the vibraphone 2 part may be doubled.
