Notes: The second movement of Claude Debussy's String Quartet in G minor, Assez vif et bien rythmé, is a scherzo very much influenced by the percussive nature of the Javanese gamelan, especially in its ostinati, or short, repeated musical patterns. This connection with Javanese percussion, coupled with the fact that most of the movement is originally scored for string pizzicato, provides an ideal opportunity to perform the piece on marimbas.
