Part of the same dramatic sequence as “A Lost Brother”, this week’s selection is a dark and sobering cue featuring orchestra, piano, and mallet percussion.
I’m fond of the often-underutilized low registers of mallet percussion instruments. Here the vibraphone, normally something we might normally consider jazzy or relaxing, takes on a subtle ominous character when played in its low register. The harp, played similarly in the bottom of its range, makes for a nice (and creepy) complement.
