PERFORMED BY JISU JUNG
MALLETS USED IN THIS ETUDE INCLUDE:
Designed for the solo marimba performer, the Virtuoso Series features a rubber core wrapped with a wool blend yarn for an especially warm and full-bodied sound. The 17″ handles are made of birch with a unique slip-resistant finish for excellent feel and enhanced control. A fine choice in ensemble settings as well!
ABOUT THE PIECE
Yellow After The Rain by Mitchell Peters, utilizes simple independent and double vertical techniques. A standard in the percussive community. A great piece for beginning four mallet players.
Virtually an entire generation of marimbists has been introduced to four-mallet techniques with this work, and it is likely that this legacy will continue, even as a wealth of excellent material joins it in the repertoire.
