For flute & percussion, includes score and parts. Composer James Lewis has created another outstanding recital piece for flutes in G & C and multi-percussion (marimba, plus small wooden instruments). The work was inspired by a coincidence of time and the composer's secret relation to George Bizet. Tuneful and fun to play, Tampanera II would be a hit on any program. Duration: ca. 7'30"

Review from Percussive Notes:

“Tampanera II” is a new setting for flute and multiple percussion of “Tampanera,” which is a duet for alto saxophone and multiple percussion published by HoneyRock. The work is loosely based on Bizet’s musical style. For example, a hint of “Habanera” from Carmen can be heard in the work. The percussion instrumentation includes five woodblocks, five temple blocks, a low-A marimba, castanets, guiro, and three slit drums. This new setting was written for the McCormick Duo (Robert McCormick, percussion, and Kim McCormick, flute).
