Programme Notes / Performance Details :

This concerto was written based on a 4 note motive of E-F-B-A. Sometimes it appears as a bass line, sometimes as a chord, and sometimes in the melody. The work is in 4 movements. 1st mvt- Allegro Moderato. 2nd mvt- Adagio, which is essentially my Musical Moment No. 5 - Romance arranged for marimba and strings. 3rd mvt- a quick Scherzo. 4rd mvt- Allegro Energico, with the theme of the 1st mvt returning at the end. Below is a youtube clip of myself performing the chamber reduction of the concerto.
