Partita in D minor (for Vibraphone, Marimba or Violin)

This piece, originally written in 1980 is an homage to the J. S. Bach D minor Partita.  It was the first major piece Ed created after college.   The piece won an honorable mention in the Percussive Arts Society Composition Contest.

It is written in a classic Baroque form, in five movements: Allemande, Corrente, Sarabande, Gigue, and Chaconne. Some of the movements only require 2 mallets, while the other requires four. Pedaling is left up to the performer.
