Default Looking for marimba/xylophone + piano music

Hi guys!
I'm looking for pieces for marimba/xylophone with piano accompaniment. If there are soloparts for the pianist as well that'd be great!
Can anyone recommend any pieces? Beginner to advanced, doesn't really matter what level.

Check out Steve Weiss music. They have the most extensive collection of percussion music I've seen. They also list the accomp. and difficulty grade.

If you are looking for suggestions as to repoitore...you can't go wrong with the Creston Concerto for Marimba or the Rosauro Concerto. Both pieces are fun to play and go over well in front of an audience.

Steve Weiss is definitely a good place to start. Also, try and get a copy of "Percussion Solo Literature" by Thomas Siwe. It may be a bit dated at this point, but certainly it's a great resource.

Morris Goldenberg's clasic arrangement of J.S. Bach's concerto in A minor is a good 2-mallet one! You can find it on Steve Weiss.

One for 4-mallets that's fun is Ney Rosauro's Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra (M/P rendition)

Both great pieces and staples of the mallet playing world!
