Caves, mountains, and canyons. These are three typical favorite landscapes one would like to spend the day hiking. Let this solo guide you through the three of them. Soft mallet rolls open the piece and welcome the listener to the first part of the trail. The music develops and builds throughout the second movement. And a Reggae "chucking" style third movement finishes it out. The player will be challenged by out-of-this-world interval changes and independence. Trust me, the piece will be as fun to play and see as it is to hear!
This solo is written on a grand staff for 4-mallets. Both the original 5-Octave version and a 4.3-Octave version are included.
