Abstract:This paper presents a detailed musical and technical examination of seven six-mallet marimba solo works. The author conducted interviews in person and via email with the seven composers in order to better understand their original compositional intentions and their preferred interpretation. Based on this information, performance strategies, sticking, and mallet positions are illustrated through musical and photographic examples. In addition to proposing new six-mallet techniques, I provide my own exercises and performance practice methods to better learn the works under consideration. Practical advice is also provided for composers interested in writing for six-mallet marimba.
