About The Music Box
This ensemble imitates the sounds of a music box. It is scored for 5 mallet parts and 2 percussion parts. Mallet parts include bells, vibes, xylophone and 2 marimbas (both can be played on the same instrument) and the two percussion players are assigned to cover ratchet, triangle wood blocks, temple blocks and tambourine. The music box is wound up at the beginning and plays until it runs down, and then is wound up again and continues in the form of a round or canon and finally runs down at the end. This ensemble challenges many of the percussion section to play mallet parts that are not overly difficult, wetting their appetites for greater challenges. They will enjoy playing it and it is a real audience pleaser.
