Current vibraphone performance requires new techniques along with creative ideas and methods. The intent of this document is to expand the musical knowledge and ability of the vibraphone student/performer through identified musical and technical challenges in Ney Rosauro's Concerto for Vibraphone and Orchestra and Brazilian Landscape. A sequential study of these compositions will provide many of the tools necessary to become a consummate vibist. A comprehensive examination of dampening, pedaling, unique techniques, musical concepts and artistic considerations offer options and possibilities for interpretation. Background information is included to give the performer conceptual ideas necessary to explore the intent of the composer.
