Debussy: Danse [Tarantelle Styrienne] (for marimba duo)

Nancy Zeltsman - Danse by Claude Debussy v4.3

Originally for piano solo, Zeltsman adapted this for marimba duo (one low-E and one low-C marimba). She recorded it with Jack Van Geem on their duo CD, Pedro and Olga Learn to Dance. The adaptation is somewhat challenging. In a quick tempo, it has a generally airy, light feel with intermittent splashes of excitement--including a dramatic ending. A focal point of the piece is the playful alternations and juxtapositions of "6/8" and "3/4" rhythmic phrasing.
