    About the Piece:
    The Concerto No.2 for Marimba was originally written for five octave marimba and full symphony orchestra. The work was composed during the summer of 2001 and was sponsored by a grant from the University of Miami. The percussion ensemble version was completed in the summer of 2002 and is dedicated to the marimba virtuoso Keiko Abe. The concerto is written in three movements:

    I) Water Running in High Mountain has two contrasting themes and depicts the way water makes its path down rocky mountain slopes.

    II) Reflections and Dreams starts with a quote from J.S. Bach and develops into a romantic and somewhat mystical atmosphere. Later, a new theme in a lively and contrasting tempo is introduced, which serves as a motive for a fugato movement that is developed before the main themes return.

    III) Walking on Clouds has a lively tempo, but its soft melody and rhythmic structure in a 5/4 meter evokes an image of music coming from the clouds. The fugato idea that appears in the second movement returns in this movement before the solo cadenza. In the cadenza, the wooden sound played with the rattan handles of the sticks depicts an old tradition of African balaphones. A quote from a Keiko Abe theme follows, and excerpts of the main themes of the concerto reappear. After the re-exposition of the main themes, a coda using the same vigorous motive from the introduction concludes the work in an uplifting mood.

    Ney Rosauro (born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on October 24, 1952) is a Brazilian composer, percussionist and pedagogue. His more than 100 compositions include solos for marimba, vibraphone and multi-percussion setups, as well as music for percussion ensembles and several concerti for solo percussion and orchestras. A common theme in his work is the use of traditional Brazilian melodies, rhythm and melodies to create music with Brazilian roots.
    He studied Compositions and Conducting at the Universidade de Brasília, in Brasília, Brazil, where he received his bachelor's degree. He then attended the Musikhochschule Wuerzburg (Germany) with Prof. Siegfried Fink, where he achieved master's degree. He got his DMA at University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL where he was Director of Percussion Studies from 2000 to 2010.

    From 1977 to 1987 he taught percussion at EMB (Escola de Musica de Brasilia) and played timpani and percussion at the Orquestra do Teatro Nacional de Brasilia. From 1987 until 2000 he directed the Percussion Department at the Federal Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, in Santa Maria, RS, Brazil.

    His work, the Concerto for Marimba and String orchestra #1, is the most frequently played piece for solo percussion worldwide, performed by outstanding artists like Evelyn Glennie.[1]

    He has recorded 11 CDs and have presented concerts and clinics in more than 45 countries.

    How this project came about:

    The marimba and the piano employ, although in very different ways, the Technique of Percussion. The marimba being played with four mallets on the sounding boards whereas the piano uses eighty-eight hammers on the strings. Both instruments have a very wide range and remarkable dynamic. Their tonal variations give them ideal prerequisites for expressive musical interpretations. I enjoy playing them both.

    As it happens ever since my youth, I have also been fascinated by the technique of recording engineering. So asked myself how could I combine these three passions in one project.

    When I discovered the Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra (with a piano reduction) by Ney Rosauro, the following enterprise occurred to me as an interesting challenge:

    A studio production in which I play and record both instruments, then edit the audio and video. The result is the recording you have in front of you.

    I hope you enjoy it!

    ABOUT THE PIECE
    The Concerto for Vibraphone and Orchestra was written in Santa Maria, RS, Brazil in 1995 and 1996 and is dedicated to Evelyn Glennie. The work was originally written for vibraphone and chamber orchestra and was premiered with piano reduction during the 1996 Japan Percussion Festival in Tokyo.

    The work is written in three movements and has a bridge connecting the last two movements without pause. The first and last movements are constructed over a mixed scale that combines lydian and mixolydian modes, which are quite often found in the folk music of northeastern Brazil. The first movement (Recitativo-Allegro) develops from a chromatic theme, presented in a slow tempo in the opening measures of the work, and represents the constant life struggle of the poor people in the dry lands of northeastern Brazil. The second movement (Acalanto / Lullaby) is based on the Brazilian folk lullaby called Tutú Marambá, and depicts a child's peaceful passage to a dream-filled slumber. The effect of playing the vibraphone with the rattan handle of the mallet recalls the sound of music boxes used to lull children to sleep. The last movement (Vivo - Presto) depicts the flight of seagulls, which was inspired by time spent by the composer at Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro, while watching a breathtaking view of the sun setting over the Arpoador rock formations.

    Percussive Notes magazine calls the concerto an excellent showcase for the solo vibist, and, like the Marimba Concerto, another excellent work that audiences will find enjoyable and exciting.

  • Ney Rosaro Extended Grip Lessons - Lesson 1: Gripping the Mallets

    4:28

    In our exclusive lesson series, world renowned composer and performer Ney Rosauro demonstrates the grip that he uses on both Marimba and Vibraphone. Developed during an extensive performing career, Ney's Extended Cross Grip combines the advantages of the Burton grip (power, speed and ease of learning) with the Musser/Stevens grip (independence, flexibility and wide interval range). In addition, the Extended Cross Grip applies instantly to all keyboard and multi-percussion instruments, making it the most effective way to play with four mallets.

    A native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Ney has developed a successful international career as a percussionist, composer and pedagogue. He is an immensely popular composer of percussion concerti with an average of 150 performances each year by distinguished orchestras and wind ensembles worldwide. His numerous compositions and method books have become standards in the percussion repertoire and his CDs have been hailed by critics, percussionists and general music-lovers alike.

    As soloist and pedagogue he has presented courses, solo concerts and performances with orchestras in around the world.

    5:36

    Ney Rosauro performs the 4th Movement: Despedida (Farewell) from his popular Concerto for Marimba & Percussion Ensemble with the University of Miami Percussion Ensemble (recorded May 2008).

    About the piece:
    Ney Rosauro's Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra was written in June and July of 1986 in Brasília and is dedicated to the composer's son Marcelo. The work was originally written for marimba and string orchestra and was premiered in the USA the same year with the Manitowoc Symphony Orchestra in Wisconsin under the direction of Manuel Prestamo. The Wind Ensemble version is arranged by Dr. Thomas McCutchen.

    With the commercial success of a 1990 CD and video by Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie and the London Symphony Orchestra, the Concerto rapidly came to be regarded as part of the standard literature for percussion. It is considered to be the most popular marimba concerto today, and has been performed by more than eight hundred orchestras worldwide.

    The concerto contains four movements - unusual for the concerto form -- which follow the fast-slow-fast pattern, with the medium tempo third movement inserted before the vigorous finale. Some Brazilian motifs and jazz elements are used throughout the piece, which contains strong rhythmic patterns and catchy melodies. The marimba leads the thematic material throughout much the piece, and as a result, the marimba part of certain movements can be performed solo, without orchestral accompaniment. The solo part explores the many possibilities of modern four-mallet technique, and according to reviews from Percussive Notes magazine the concerto is superbly written for the unique timbre and virtuoso technical qualities of the marimba.

    About the composer:

    Ney Rosauro is recognized as one of the most original and dynamic symphonic percussionists and composers today. Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on October 24, 1952, he started studying percussion in 1977 with Luiz Anunciação of the Orquestra Sinfonica Brasileira in Rio de Janeiro.

    Mr. Rosauro studied Composition and Conducting at the Universidade de Brasilia (Brazil). He then received the Masters Degree in Percussion at the Hochschule fur Musik Wurzburg in Germany under Prof. Siegfried Fink. He completed his Doctorate at the University of Miami under the supervision of Fred Wickstrom.

    From 1975 to 1987 he was percussion instructor at the Escola de Musica de Brasilia, and timpanist with the Orquestra do Teatro Nacional de Brasilia in Brazil.

    From 1987 until 2000 he directed the Percussion Department at the Federal University of Santa Maria, RS in Brazil. From 2000 until 2009 he was director of Percussion Studies at the University of Miami, Florida.

His compositions are very popular worldwide and have been recorded by internationally acclaimed artists such as Evelyn Glennie and the London Symphony Orchestra. His Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra has been performed by over 2,000 different orchestras worldwide, and his nine solo CDs have received critical acclaim and been hailed by percussionists and general music-lovers alike.

  • Ney Rosauros Mother Earth, Father Sky

    Performed by the University of Southern Mississippi Percussion Ensemble under the direction of Dr. John Wooton.

    Mallet selection includes the Ney Rosauro Signature Series by Vic Firth:

    ABOUT THE PIECE:
    The Great Spirit is our Father, but the Earth is our Mother. She nourishes us; that which we put into the ground she returns to us…. Spoken by Big Thunder of the Wabanaki nation in Maine, these words bear eloquent testimony to an awareness of the cosmos that is shared by all the native cultures of what is today the United States and Canada.

    The main harmonic concept of the work consists of the following consideration: If the letters of the alphabet are given to the notes of a chromatic scale, the letter A would be the note C, letter B the C#, letter C the D, letter E the D# and so on. With this configuration, the words Mother Earth create a C major/suspended chord and the wordsFather Sky create a C major/suspended chord with a minor seventh and a sharp eleventh, suggesting a C augmented chord and a C whole tone scale.

    The first part represents the Earth and depicts the progression from the dawn to the full light of day. A small bridge represents the fire, and the second part represents the Sky with its force and thunderstorms. The same material that represents the Earth will close the work. The main theme of the work represents the Great Spirit and his voice will be heard throughout the piece, through the Earth and from the Sky. Published by Pro Percussão BR/USA

  • Ney Rosauro performs Brazilian Landscape from Two Reflections for Solo Vibraphone

    5:48

    About the Piece:

    Ney Rosauro writes:
    BRAZILIAN LANDSCAPE is a fantasy that depicts a musical journey through Brazil. Starting with a very soft lento motive, the work presents a lyrical melody in the rhythm of baiao with a long development and increasing tension. After reaching its climax the theme returns with to the same very soft lento motive from the beginning. This work is essentially a transcribed version of an improvisation that I commonly played on concerts for over ten years.

    About the Piece:
    The Concerto No.2 for Marimba was originally written for five octave marimba and full symphony orchestra. The work was composed during the summer of 2001 and was sponsored by a grant from the University of Miami. The percussion ensemble version was completed in the summer of 2002 and is dedicated to the marimba virtuoso Keiko Abe. The concerto is written in three movements:

    I) Water Running in High Mountain has two contrasting themes and depicts the way water makes its path down rocky mountain slopes.

    II) Reflections and Dreams starts with a quote from J.S. Bach and develops into a romantic and somewhat mystical atmosphere. Later, a new theme in a lively and contrasting tempo is introduced, which serves as a motive for a fugato movement that is developed before the main themes return.

    III) Walking on Clouds has a lively tempo, but its soft melody and rhythmic structure in a 5/4 meter evokes an image of music coming from the clouds. The fugato idea that appears in the second movement returns in this movement before the solo cadenza. In the cadenza, the wooden sound played with the rattan handles of the sticks depicts an old tradition of African balaphones. A quote from a Keiko Abe theme follows, and excerpts of the main themes of the concerto reappear. After the re-exposition of the main themes, a coda using the same vigorous motive from the introduction concludes the work in an uplifting mood.

  • Ney Rosauro performs his Concerto for Marimba & Percussion Ensemble - Movement 1

    4:05

    Ney Rosauro performs the 1st Movement: Saudação (Greetings) from his popular Concerto for Marimba & Percussion Ensemble with the University of Miami Percussion Ensemble (recorded May 2008).

    About the piece:
    Ney Rosauro's Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra was written in June and July of 1986 in Brasília and is dedicated to the composer's son Marcelo. The work was originally written for marimba and string orchestra and was premiered in the USA the same year with the Manitowoc Symphony Orchestra in Wisconsin under the direction of Manuel Prestamo. The Wind Ensemble version is arranged by Dr. Thomas McCutchen.

    With the commercial success of a 1990 CD and video by Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie and the London Symphony Orchestra, the Concerto rapidly came to be regarded as part of the standard literature for percussion. It is considered to be the most popular marimba concerto today, and has been performed by more than eight hundred orchestras worldwide.

    The concerto contains four movements - unusual for the concerto form -- which follow the fast-slow-fast pattern, with the medium tempo third movement inserted before the vigorous finale. Some Brazilian motifs and jazz elements are used throughout the piece, which contains strong rhythmic patterns and catchy melodies. The marimba leads the thematic material throughout much the piece, and as a result, the marimba part of certain movements can be performed solo, without orchestral accompaniment. The solo part explores the many possibilities of modern four-mallet technique, and according to reviews from Percussive Notes magazine the concerto is superbly written for the unique timbre and virtuoso technical qualities of the marimba.

    About the composer:

    Ney Rosauro is recognized as one of the most original and dynamic symphonic percussionists and composers today. Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on October 24, 1952, he started studying percussion in 1977 with Luiz Anunciação of the Orquestra Sinfonica Brasileira in Rio de Janeiro.

    Mr. Rosauro studied Composition and Conducting at the Universidade de Brasilia (Brazil). He then received the Masters Degree in Percussion at the Hochschule fur Musik Wurzburg in Germany under Prof. Siegfried Fink. He completed his Doctorate at the University of Miami under the supervision of Fred Wickstrom.

    From 1975 to 1987 he was percussion instructor at the Escola de Musica de Brasilia, and timpanist with the Orquestra do Teatro Nacional de Brasilia in Brazil.

    From 1987 until 2000 he directed the Percussion Department at the Federal University of Santa Maria, RS in Brazil. From 2000 until 2009 he was director of Percussion Studies at the University of Miami, Florida.

    As a composer he has published more than 50 pieces for percussion as well as several method books. His compositions are very popular worldwide and have been recorded by internationally acclaimed artists such as Evelyn Glennie and the London Symphony Orchestra. His Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra has been performed by over 2,000 different orchestras worldwide, and his nine solo CDs have received critical acclaim and been hailed by percussionists and general music-lovers alike.

    Ney Rosauro has appeared in concert solo, and as a soloist with orchestras, in more than 35 different countries, including the most prestigious International Percussion Festivals.
