3rd place winner in the 2000 PAS Composition Contest, Marimba Quartet is a virtuosic, 17 minute piece written in the four-movement structure of a classical string quartet. The first movement is highly neo-classical, in sonata-allegro form. The second utilizes a cyclic, self-transposing, jazzy harmonic progression in one voice as a foundation for floating melodic ideas in the other three parts. The third, "Scherzo Rhythmicus," is a tour de force in 20 eighth-note time, leading to a surprising 3/8 conclusion. The final movement is an all-out chromatic race (a la Dimitri Shostakovich) to the climatic final triad!
