Programme Notes / Performance Details :

One performer plays marimba and the other plays vibraphone and marimba in this brand new duet from Israeli composer V. Torchinsky. The piece opens rather freely setting the tone for the harmonic material in the composition. It gradually takes on a more structured shape, leading into an allegro with blazing fast 32nd note runs and much syncopation. The middle section involves the trading of sustained chords between marimbas, then a simple theme presented in eighth notes by the vibraphone. The piece closes with the allegro material from earlier.
