Xylophone Solo - "Tambourin Chinois" by Fritz Kreisler
« on: November 06, 2015, 04:06 AM »
Today, November 6, is J.C. Deagan's birthday (1853-1934) ... founder of the Deagan company, makers of fine mallet percussion instruments.

I thought I'd share an old video of mine, a recording from 30 years ago -- the final piece I performed during my junior recital back on May 4, 1985 (just a month before my 21st birthday). In the video, I'm playing on a 4-octave Deagan Xylophone (c.1908) which I no longer own but thoroughly enjoyed; what a beautiful sounding and looking instrument!


"Tambourin Chinois" (Chinese Drum) was original composed for violin by Fritz Kreisler. This arrangement is by legendary xylophonist, George Hamilton Green.
