Beethoven's FantasyLudwig van Beethoven/arr. Brian Slawson - Tapspace Publications
Ludwig van Beethoven is regarded by many as the greatest composer in the history of music. He was prone to sudden mood swings often reflected in his music. This excerpt from his Piano Sonata 13, Op.27 No. 1 is no exception, as the original dark, introspective material is later contrasted by music that is light and humorous. Brian Slawson brings Beethoven's piano solo to life by way of intimate scoring for mallet percussion trio. While relatively simple on the page, its challenge lies in the player's ability to communicate as one.
