I'm working on the mallet part for Copland's Four Dance Episodes from Rodeo. In the Buckaroo Holiday (1st) movement, the glock part between rehearsal 31 and 34 calls for D4, D5, and D6. This would seem to require a 3-octave glock.
As I only have access to the common 2.5-octave type, does anyone have a suggestion as to how to handle this part?
I noticed a similar issue in the glock part in Holst's Jupiter, as it called for notes above the range of a 2.5-octave glock as usually notated. However, that one seemed solvable by just transposing one octave instead of the usual two. Is that the common practice?
Thanks for any and all advice.
