    Easy Solos vol. 12013Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    "In the early 1970s the legendary percussionist  Mitchell Peters composed unforgettable works for the young marimba player such as Sea Reflections and Yellow after the Rain. Now Daniel Berg continues Peters pedagogical idea of ​​a repertoire that is idiomatic while musically challenging for the young percussionist.  

    This booklet contains five solo pieces with four mallets for vibraphone, xylophone or marimba. All works have the range F-F and can therefore be played on any mallet instrument." 

    Easy Duets with duets for mallet instruments by Daniel Berg are previously published by Edition Svitzer. The books have been very well received among young students and teachers around the world.

    Easy Solos vol. 42016Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the early 1970s the legendary percussionist Mitchell Peters composed unforgettable works for the young marimba player such as Sea Reflections and Yellow after the Rain. Now Daniel Berg continues Peters pedagogical idea of a repertoire that is idiomatic while musically challenging for the young percussionist.   

    With this final booklet in the series Easy Solos, I want to salute five people who all contributed greatly to increase the interest in the marimba.  

    Vol. 4 contains:• Opus and Numero (dedicated to Clair Omar Musser)• Zen Refractions after the Rain (to Mitchell Peters)• Une Petite Prière (to Evelyn Glennie) • Etude #4 (to Paul Smadbeck)• Variations on Swedish Folk Songs (to Keiko Abe)  

    Easy Solos Vol. 1, 2 and 3 are previously published by Edition Svitzer. The books have been very well received among young students and teachers around the world.  

    With these five works my hope is to approach the classical standard repertoire for marimba, in the degree of difficulty, and therefore the technical level is a little higher than in the previous parts. As before, all the works in this booklet have the range F-F and can therefore be played on any mallet instruments.

    Fantasia & Toccata: for solo marimba2012Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As a young percussionist I played timpani with S:t. Matteus Symfoniorkester (SMSO) in Stockholm. During a production we played among others Gloria by Francis Poulenc, for choir and orchestra. The music, and above all the harmony, had a big impact on me. I was immediately inspired to study more music from Poulenc together with other French composers like Oliver Messiaen. Fantasia and Toccata is strongly inspired by the harmonies of both Poulenc and Messiaen which I have tried to adapt through the marimba.

    Four Mallet Duos2015Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    My passion for chamber music started when I played my first pieces for percussion duo. To create something of its own together and find a personal means of expression has since led me to new ways and new combinations of instruments. I hope these four duets may inspire you to play more chamber music focusing on percussion. 

    Presently, I give about 100 concerts a year with any of my chamber music formations. Organ and percussion with Johannes Landgren, guitar and marimba with Christer Brodén, violin and marimba with Tobias Granmo, and percussion duo with Fredrik Duvling (www.rhythmartduo.com).

    Fusion: for Guitar and Marimba2022Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For many years I have, together with Christer Brodén, ordered new music for guitar and marimba. From the many fine pieces we have received from composers, I find that it is often the case that one of the instruments has a solo part that is accompanied by the other instrument. In Fusion, I have therefore written two parts that seem to be on equal terms. The finger technique on guitar and playing with four mallets on marimba also have their similarities and therefore the two parts are very similar to each other. 

    I wanted to write a virtuoso piece that express the joy of playing and borrowed trait from progressive jazz. The guitar and the marimba are thus united in this Fusion.

    Helios: for solo marimba2013Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Helios was, according to Greek mythology, the sun god, but also the guardian of the seas and the god of gift of being able to see. Every morning he went across the sky with his golden chariot drawn by fiery stallions. When he reached the Hesperides (country of evening) in the west, he went back over Okeanos water by boat and the sunset was created. 

    When I wrote Blue Memories a couple of years ago, I chose an enamel painting by Swedish artist, Bengt Berglund from late 60's as cover for the work. This painting I chose is part of a series of other enamel paintings by Berglund. For a few years now, I have been thinking of writing music for the remaining paintings in the series. 

    Helios, Twilight Garden and Blue Memories are related to each other in terms of harmony, rhythm and character. The three pieces are written as standalone pieces, however the three pieces works well together as one substantial piece with several movements in it.

    IMAGES: for Mallet Duo2020Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1992, I started with Fredrik Duvling at the Academy of Music and Dram in Gothenburg, Sweden to study percussion for Bo Holmstrand and Einar Nielsen. Already the first week we started playing duo with each other and as a great inspiration we had the Danish percussion duo Safri. We studied several works our Danish role models had in their repertoire such as the arrangement of Ravel's Alborada del gracioso, Re-Percussion by Per Nörgård and Miinoru Miki's Marimba Spiritual in a version for two percussionists.

    Today, almost 30 years later, Fredrik and I have worked closely with composers who written a fantastic personal repertoire for us who have followed us on numerous tours and recordings. When we talked about the future after this summer's tour, Fredrik suggested:

    - Why don’t you write something for us?

     

    Musicians who have played together for a long time often become a mirror image of the other player, perhaps it is most clearly seen among percussionists? When timing, phrasing, nuances and movements work in the interplay, the musicians become shadows of each other.

     

    With the first movement of IMAGES, I want to create a dreamlike atmosphere where the musicians become a shadow, an echo of each other. The second movement is very rhythmic where the percussionists become a mirror image of each other with unison rhythms that energetically drive the music to the virtuoso ending.

    Impossible Etudes II: Even worse2010Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     1. Dragonfly: • Focuses on the development of precise interval changes, primarily with the outer mallets. Interval ranges include M2 up to an octave, but the shifts move mostly in stepwise motion. 

    2. The Dark Side of Marimba Playing • Intended to practice long jumps and fast interval shifts in a smooth and controlled manner. • Inner voices maintain a roll on dissonant cluster chords while outer voices jump for single notes. • Uses octave intervals. 

    3. Marimba Etude for Octaves • RH plays double verticals in larger intervals (up to a 10th), while LH outlines the harmony with arpeggios. • Works on developing the interval switch from 6th to octave 

    4. Hochzeitsmarsch • Arranged to help develop one-handed rolls in both hands. • May also help develop fast, relaxed motion on double verticals and quick shifting around the instrument.

    Kinkaku-Ji: Meditation for Flauto Alto and Vibraphone2020Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the late 1990s I visited Japan. Something that made a strong impression on me was the Japanese gardens who breathed meditation and inner peace. 

     

    The original Japanese religion, Shinto, is based on the worship of nature spirits and therefore everything in a Japanese garden - plants, rocks and water – has a spiritual meaning and represent something beyond their physical shape.

    Kroumata: for Percussion sextet2021Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Growing up in the 80s, my biggest inspiration was the Swedish Percussion Ensemble KROUMATA; six musicians who made a living playing chamber music with percussion. I attended several of their concerts and their interplay, virtuosity and common crescendo and accelerando made a strong impression on me as a young drummer. My first CD with classical percussion was the Kroumata and Keiko Abe. Fantastic recordings of Rain Tree by Tôru Takemitsu and Marimba Spritual by Minoru Miki inspired me to play both pieces myself some years later. A clear proof of how big KROUMATA were in Sweden during this time was when the Swedish His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf turned 50 in 1996. As a birthday present, he wanted a concert with Stevie Wonder AND KROUMATA. Today, when I received the commission from Odense Percussion and their artistic leader Søren Monrad, I would like to pay tribute to my childhood idols KROUMATA. In my piece, there are a few quotes from the repertoire that was so strongly associated with KROUMATA, but also contains the energy that was so magical around the concerts with the ensemble.

    La Buena Vida: for Guitar and Marimba2022Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    I wanted to write a work where the rhythm is in focus and the harmony, so to speak, plays the second violin. With a portion of great humor, I have chosen to vary the time signature (towards the end, the instruments play different time signature at the same time) and let the guitar both dance and play a chamber musical "cat and rat game" with the marimba. When I would then set harmonics to these rhythms, I have used 12-tone technique, full-tone scales and one of the few chords I can play on guitar myself. 

    With Christer Brodén, I not only share the passion for music but also the joy of life and a great interest for food and beverage. That's why our collaboration is gilded with most from The Good Life - La Buena Vida!

    Mallet Ensembles vol. 12015Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Daniel Berg has a great passion for teaching and a dream that more children and young people will find the melodic percussion instruments. In Mallet Ensembles the level is a little more difficult compared to his earlier booklets for Youth - Easy Solos, Easy Duets and Easy Marching Percussion. The hope with these scores is to awaken a curiosity and a bridge to the classical repertoire for mallet instruments, but also an encouragement to play music with each other!

    These three songs are orchestrated for a couple of mallet instruments – to get a rich and ”fat sound”, please double each part on both marimba and vibraphone in several octaves.

    Mallet Ensembles vol. 22017Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As many kids, I started to play drums and later in the teens I got in contact with the melodic percussion… and I was stucked!  With the songs in Mallet Ensembles I have an attempt to  awaken a young drummers curiosity for marimba and  vibrophone. Therefore I use repeated technical patterns in the  chord parts, quite easy to learn, but a little bit tricky and fun  for a drummer to play. 

    These three songs are orchestrated for a couple of mallet  instruments – to get a rich and ”fat sound”, please double each  part on both marimba and vibraphone in several octaves.  The glockenspiel part is grade as easy, melody part is a little bit  harder and chord parts intermediate.

    Marching Percussion Ensemble2015Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What’s the best thing about marching drumming? Leader of the Gothenburg Drum Corps in Sweden, Per Björkqvist, asked me this question some years ago. I gave it some thought and answered, “everybody can join!”. And yes, if you have fun pieces to play, you can arrange them for all levels so everybody can join.   

    In this booklet, Per Björkqvist has written drum parts for three of my pieces from Easy Duets (previously published by Edition Svitzer). These parts have their roots in “warm up exercises” often used in the world of drum corps. Per and I hope that these pieces can get everyone to play together and further strengthen their interest in playing percussion ensemble music. 

    Daniel Berg 

    As a percussion teacher, you need to inspire your students to play different instruments, musical styles and concepts. We need to work on lots of layers to get the students to groove and learn new things, often inspired by their friends in a social community. There are three important roles for having a successful climate to grooving: 1. you need to play together with others; 2. you need to understand what it’s about and; 3. you have to learn new things every time.   

    Often, there is too little time to rehearse everything that you want to work on in a rehearsal; warm ups, time keeping, period playing, rudimental drumming, new tunes and so on. In these three tunes, we tried to combine a lot of these ideas. Our first goal is to let the students play a lot and have fun, (it’s much more fun to play then to count rests). You can add one or more of the percussion parts to the great pieces that Daniel has written, depending on the setting of your ensemble and level of your students. Good luck and have fun!

    Mistral: for solo marimba2019Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the early 2000s, I had the pleasure to teach and perform together with the American marimba legend Michael Burritt at a couple of summer courses. In one concert, I remember he present his new solo piece Scirocco with fast-moving and swirling melodic lines – inspired by one of the eight desert winds across the Mediterranean Sea. The year after, Michael played the first performance of his lyric the Offering and both pieces are now standard works for marimba.

    Almost twenty years later, I got the opportunity to write a solo piece for Michael Burritt and I want to catch the positive energy from his personality and from his strong virtuoso and lyric playing. And, as a greeting to Michael and with a little humor, the piece gets name after another desert wind across the Mediterranean Sea.

    The Harmonies in Mistral is chosen by overtones from the low octaves of a marimba. Together, the notes in the chords form a tone color unique to the instrument.

In Greek mythology, the Phoenix built a nest of aromatic twigs and set herself on fire. Three days after the death, she resurrected from the ashes. The Chinese empress was the only person who could carry the symbol of the Phoenix, and therefore associated with the feminine energy, while the dragon represented the male - the union of yin and yang. In the Japanese culture is the bird Phoenix along with the rising sun symbol of the immortal and is called "Ho-o" - the immortal bird.    

    When I wrote Blue Memories a couple of years ago, I chose an enamel painting by Swedish artist, Bengt Berglund from late 60's as cover for the work. This painting I chose is part of a series of other enamel paintings by Berglund. For a few years now, I have been thinking of writing music for the remaining paintings in the series. Phoenix, Helios, Twilight Garden and Blue Memories are related to each other in terms of harmony, rhythm and character. The four pieces are written as standalone pieces, however the four pieces works well together as one substantial piece with several movements in it.   

    Daniel Berg studied with the marimba virtuoso Robert van Sice at the Rotterdams Conservatorium, Holland (Europe’s first diploma program for solo marimba), 1993-1997. As a big thank Daniel dedicates this piece to his professor!

    Dickinson, Emily (Lyricist)
    POEMS for Vibraphone and Soprano2020Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When the American poet Emily Dickinson died in 1886, only a few of her poems were published. She had sent her poems to a local critic, who tried to dissuade her from publishing and considered that her poetry was too dirty and odd and therefore only a handful of her poems were published during her lifetime. After Emily's death, her sister was responsible for the publication of the 1700 poems and has since been praised by people all over the world. Dickinson was a very original poet, glorified and like to talk in the same breath. She wrote about conventional poetic subjects such as nature, love, death and God.

     

    The combination of the sound from a vibraphone, together with a soprano, fits so well together. When Thai-American percussionist Yun Ju Pan asked me for a piece for soprano with percussion, I suggested the vibraphone. To get as much contrast as possible in the composition, I choosed texts by Emily Dickinson with very different character for the four first movements. The fifth one is written more like a jazz ballad and some sort of reflection of the poems by Dickinson - a final poem without words.

    Point North: for percussion quintet2021Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To me, the northern part of Sweden breathes something enigmatic. It is above all nature, but also architecture, that has something magnificent about it - as it is created by mother earth. Point North is written to Johan Bodin Eriksson and the Härnösand Percussion Ensemble for their 30th anniversary in 2021. The three movements are inspired by three of the four seasons, but also from architecture and nature in the north part of Sweden. 1st movement - Autumn (the Library) The Sambiblioteket was inaugurated in February 2000 and was a joint collaboration between several libraries and the vision was to create a link between the university and the city center, a meeting place and an active knowledge center for all people in Härnösand. The architect Hans Tirsén and his staff focused in their competition proposal "the beech forest" on the character of Härnösand by solitaires surrounded by vegetation. The interior is played out against the greenery of the ground through the thin membrane of the window wall. During dark autumn evenings, the library shines like a lantern of knowledge in high-tech. 2nd movement - Winter (the Mountain) - Get a culinary experience with a breathtaking view of Härnösand. Eating should be an experience! The restaurant at the top of Vårdkasen has taken this quote to heart and offers the art of Swedish home cooking together with a magnificent view through the dining room window. At the top of the mountain is also a lookout tower that was completed in 2007. The architect Björn Westin has been inspired by both space rockets and a vårdkase (Phryctoriae) that previously existed on the mountain, a fire that warned for war and other danger. The lookout tower with its three levels is reached by a large open staircase that can also serve as a stage, but also as a starting point for slalom competitions during the winter. 3rd movement - Spring (the Waterfall) With a drop of a total 90 meters, the Västanåfallet is one of the highest waterfall in Sweden. It’s water from the 4 km upstream lake Eksjön, which via a river forms a waterfall when the water flows down the steep mountainside. Västanåfallet is particularly powerful when snow and ice are melting and the high tide of spring forms a white, rushing wall down the cliffs. The fall height has previously been used for hydropower and contributed to several mills being built in region during the 17th, 18h and 19th centuries. Today the area is a nature reserve and a place for recreation and reflection, especially when the spring flood comes - nature´s musical primordial power!

    Second Concerto: for Flute and Percussion2019Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1939 the American Lou Harrison composed his First Concerto – a classical and fantastic work for flute and two percussion players. Influenced by this piece, Daniel Berg now wants to continue in the same atmosphere with a second concerto. The first movement is very much inspired by the groove and swinging syncopated rhythms from the concerto by Lou Harrison.

    In the four other movements Daniel Berg enters a world of different techniques for the flute like air tones, tongue pizzicato and Tongue Ram. Every moment is dedicated to a fantastic flute player Daniel worked with during the years – for example Björn J:son Lindh who was an excellent composer and a master in playing singing and percussive flute.

    For the percussion part Daniel uses traditional instruments like drums and wood blocks, but also toy electric bell, marimba, vibraphone and a tuned bottle. The Concerto is written for two percussionists, however it’s possible to be played by one player (both parts in first movement and only the marimba in the last) – just like the First Concerto for Flute and Percussion by Lou Harrison.

    Spectrum: for solo marimba2007Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Spectrum" is an attractive four-mallet marimba solo by marimbist Daniel Berg. Similar to his popular composition, "Over the Moon," "Spectrum" creates a collage of uneven rhythms and shifting harmonies that slowly envelop the listener. According to the composer, "Specturm" is similar to a prism. Berg hopes that the audience will hear "different sources of inspiration" in this prsim such as "rhythms from the Japanese marimba virtuoso Keiko Abe and harmony from the music of genius Quincy Jones."While no meter is indicated for "Spectrum," Berg writes in 7/8 or 5/8 much of the time. The glue that holds the music together is a left-hand ostinato that primarily shifts by half-steps or whole steps. Meanwhile, the right hand performs a pleasant melody that gradually increases the tension both harmonically and rhythmically. The six-minute composition eventually returns to a variation of the original theme before concluding softly. "Spectrum" would be a fine choice for any intermediate- to advanced-level marimbist. The music is charming and suitable for any recital or concert.--

    Stella Polaris: Five pieces for Vibraphone2010Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This booklet is addressed primary to students who are beginning to learn the basic Vibraphone techniques. Each song focus on something that is characteristic for the vibraphone - e.g. dampening, pedaling. My wish is that these songs will create a continues interest for the Vibraphone and create a bridge to the other solo and chamber music literature for this instrument.

    Stella Polaris (also called the North or Pole Star), is the brightest star in the constellation Ursa Minor and located at a distance of approximately 430 light years from Earth. Polaris shows the north direction by its location only one degree from the north celestial pole.

    Studies for Marimba: Etudes and Exercises with Four Mallets2009Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna bok innehåller övningar och etyder för marimbaspel med fyra klubbor. 

     Svårighetsgraden sträcker sig från grund- till avancerade övningar. Boken vänder sig både till nybörjaren (med grundkunskaper i notläsning) och till den professionella slagverkaren (som vill förbättra sin teknik). 

    Varje kapitel i boken innehåller en typ av teknisk uppgift – t.ex. kapitel 1 innehåller tremoloövningar. När jag undervisar använder jag ofta exempel från flera kapitel samtidigt. Indelningen av kapitel är fr.a. gjord för att lätt kunna hitta den typ av övning eller etyd man söker.

    Suite for Mallet Duo2017Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    January What’s the sound of a cold winter day with a frozen lake? I dedicate January to Nadia Boulanger, a French composer, conductor and pedagogue, because of her passion for teaching. Among those who studied with her can be mentioned – Aaron Copland, Astor Piazzolla, Per Nørgård, Elliot Carter, James Wood, Philip Glass and Quincy Jones.

    February, another mallet dance… A few years ago I was written a duo by the vibraphone virtuoso Anders Åstrand. The dance for vibraphone and marimba, based on a rhythmic pattern in 12/8 played on a couple of harmonies, has since then become a favorite piece among percussion players. In February the joy of snow is in focus, but the fact that both Anders and I were born in February does not do things worse.  

    March, end of Winter As a young student I got in contact with the piece Tierkreis by Karlheinz Stockhausen. Chords with both major and minor took me through the sky to another universe. In March, end of Winter I would like to get the melancholic atmosphere when ices are melting and when heavy snow transforms into the rain of grey.  

    April There is probably no other composer than Igor Stravinskij who better interpreted the primal force of Spring. In April I have borrowed the typical syncopation of eights that in my version dances on the twelve tones.  

    Springtime – it’s May! What can be more beautiful than the sound of two marimbas? Steve Reich has explored this delicate color several times, not least in his Nagoya Marimbas. Happiness of the light, the bright green color and the heat we been longing for Springtime – it’s May!  

    Night in June What can taste better than a nice cigar after an evening with delicious meal and beverage in company with a sunset? Memories from the years gone by, memory of a friend somewhere else who still speaks to me, an euphoric ecstacy with faith for the future... Night in June is dedicated to Swedish composer Jan Tolf who was a master of writing fine melodies into a harmonious mix of contemporary music and jazz.

    Timbres2013Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recently, I was invited for lunch by my good friend, artist Bengt Berglund. After lunch Bengt showed me a new work of art in different colours and said “Daniel, what kind of music will there be for these art works?”  

    When I see the pictures I think of shapes that changes, like clouds in the sky. Even if you think you know how the cloud will be formed, it often takes a different and an unexpected direction. Different eyes also create its own interpretation of abstract forms – you choose what you associate the shapes with.  

    When I got home and saw the pictures again, I got an idea to write a piece with long chord changes, where listeners does not know what the ending will be – even if they have heard the music before. The piece has three different endings and each performer can decide his or her choice of ending. It may depend on the hall and the audience atmosphere in the hall for the performer to decide which ending they choose.

    Twilight Garden: for marimba solo2013Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A garden in nightfall breathes tranquility and reflection, but also mystery. White, red and gold slowly becomes green, blue and black. The harmony in Twilight Garden is a dim shadow of my other works Helios and Blue Memories. 

    When I wrote Blue Memories a couple of years ago, I chose an enamel painting by Swedish artist, Bengt Berglund from late 60's as cover for the work. This painting I chose is part of a series of other enamel paintings by Berglund. For a few years now, I have been thinking of writing music for the remaining paintings in the series. 

    Helios, Twilight Garden and Blue Memories are related to each other in terms of harmony, rhythm and character. The three pieces are written as standalone pieces, however the three pieces works well together as one substantial piece with several movements in it.

    Two very typical sounds from my childhood is the knocking from an office, with rooms full of typewriters, and the pinball machines in every second restaurant - oh what great memories. As a child, all machines had a life and of course they must dream when they are sleeping! This piece is written and dedicated to the composer Anton Lindström, who also is a great vibraphone player, and his father - violin player, and technical genius, Hans Lindström - Two of a Kind.

    Yán jiāng2020Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When I got the commission from the Taiwan World Percussion Competition to write a set piece for their first round, I began to think about the development of the marimba repertoire over the past 30 years. Composers like Peter Klatzow, Anna Ignatowicz, Jacob Druckman, Joseph Schwantner and Alejandro Viñao have all helped to further improve the quality of the marimba repertoire and placed the instrument in the exclusive room of classical music. 

     

    Since 2010, when I published my first work at Edition Svitzer - Blue Memories and Stella Polaris, I have had a close contact to artist Bengt Berglund. Sometimes he has created new works directly for my music, like Timbres and Fantasia & Toccata, and sometimes I have used his older works from the 60s and 70s. Last year, when I wrote Mistral for Michael Burritt, a green painting from Bengt was the perfect cover. From the same series, Bengt got another one with fiery colors…

     

    The inspiration for Yán jiāng comes from the art by Bengt Berglund and from great composers I admire.
