‘La Villa Strangiato’ for Percussion

The Rush instrumental “La Villa Strangiato” turns out to be pleasantly anthemic when played on xylophone, marimba, and glockenspiel. Given the time of year, you can even convince yourself it has a holiday sound. Happy new year!

That was recorded in June 2015 at the Universidade de São Paulo, campus Ribeirão Preto. The track was arranged by Philipe Davis. Carolina Raany is playing marimba, while Kleber Tertuliano is on the vibes and glockenspiel. For something more directly festive-sounding, they’ve also filmed a video of “Losa” by composer Emmanuel Séjourné.
