Title: Orchestral Repertoire for the Glockenspiel, Volumes I and II

Description: Raynor Carroll, principal percussionist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, has compiled these books of some of the most commonly asked excerpts on the glockenspiel portion of an orchestral audition as well as some other pieces which contain famous or challenging glockenspiel parts. Because of the large number of pieces included, the books are broken up into two volumes. The books contain the entire glockenspiel part for each piece, and each part is re-notated in an easily readable format. Because the parts are not the originals, a very few discrepancies do exist.

The pieces included in Volume I are:

  • Debussy, Claude – La Mer
