Celibrated Minuet arr. two marimba players

This intermediate version features the only first minuet of Boccherini's Minuet and Trio from his String Quintet Opus 11 No.5. In this two part arrangement for marimba the musical texture has been simplified into melody and accompaniment. The ornaments have been written out in full to assist players although I would suggest that they are perhaps omitted in the early stages of learning the piece. This movement needs a very consistent approach which will be a challenge to players inexperienced in performing music from this era. A tempo of 100 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute is recommended. It is suggested that one instrumentalist plays the melody whilst the other plays the accompaniment.
