Programme Notes / Performance Details :Danza Furioso is a high-energy yet accessible feature for xylophone soloist with a backing trio of three marimbists, all sharing one instrument. With this piece, the composer sought to combine the melodic energy of a work like Brahms’s Hungarian Dance No. 5 with the fervor of traditional Guatemalan and Mexican marimba. You’ll hear the former in the solo part and the latter in the marimba-trio accompaniment, and all with a bit of gypsy flair!

Danza Furioso comes as a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing individual parts and a recording.
