Program Notes

Review

Premiered at PASIC 2000, "Afta-Stuba!," which is written for three marimbists performing on one low-A marimba, is a sequel to Mark Ford's "Stubemic." (Ford suggests that both pieces could be performed in sequence on the same program.) Those who have played "Stubemic" will recognize motives shared by both pieces. In fact, the main theme of "Afta Stuba!" derives from the first three notes of the theme of the previous composition. In "Afta-Stuba!" Ford exploits the spatial idiosyncracies of the marimba keyboard. The three marimbists must address the keyboard from all points of the compass in order to execute the tightly-written, closely coordinated, three-part counterpoint that characterizes the work. The result is a piece that provides as much fun for its performers as it does for the audience, and one that should be regularly heard on college percussion recitals. - John R. Raush, June 2001[1]
