Jupiter's Dance ALTOP026

Jupiter’s Dance was originally written as the last of a set of five pieces for solo vibraphone, the others being published as Cross Sticks. However this one has been published separately because it is technically more demanding than the others. It is a jazz-inspired solo with a strong harmonic structure and challenges a player’s rotational and chordal techniques.

Solo Vibraphone
