Programme Notes / Performance Details :

This 4-5 minute solo was composed for a 4 &1/3 octave Marimba, thinking of students who are of an intermediate to advanced level. Hence, while it requires a good basic 4 mallet technique one does not have to be a virtuoso to play it. There are many open fifths and use of octaves; most of the technical demands evolve around broken chord patterns. Quite a lot of it is written in quick 7/16 time. The piece is in Arch form. It starts in a whirl in quick 7/16 time with a recurring theme , there is no letting down in the energy albeit some time changes and the section ends with a quick succession of downbound broken chords in 3/8. Then a short B quiet section of low rolled chords interrupted by quick high pitched quintuplet figures brings the energy down only to start a long climb through a variety of modal harmonies that lead up to a bright re-statement of the original theme and onto a grandiose ending.
