PASCAL SCHUMACHER: …don’t mention it twice is a challenging work for marimbist and multipercussionist. A maestoso, quasi chorale introduction leads into a busy allegro conversation between marimba and 4 timpani. A section featuring a non pitched multipercussion setup follows, then a more lyrical section with vibraphone and marimba. After a short vibraphone cadenza, the piece concludes with a brief recap of the original chorale material.
Number of players: 2
Player 1: Vibraphone, 4 timpani, tambourin, 2 bongos, 2 tom toms, snare drum, pedal bass drum
Player 2: Marimba (4.5 octave)
