Program Notes

Review

Add to the catalog of literature attributable to George Hamilton Green, that undisputed giant of the xylophone, this gem arranged by William Cahn for xylophone solo accompanied by a marimba quartet. The marimba parts have been scored so that all four players can be accommodated by only two instruments—-a 4-octave and 4 1/3-octave marimba. Although the xylophone part does feature a florid obligato part in one section, it is written largely in a lyrical vein with double-stops used freely. This solo part places less emphasis on sticking dexterity and the technical demands that are characteristic of the xylophone rags. However, it offers possibilities for expression and phrasing that will entertain any discerning college mallet player. - John Raush, December 1994[1]
