Program Notes

Composed in 1947, this work has a very classic spirit. It highlights the contrasts between the marimba, an instrument from South America which sounds like the xylophone, and the vibraphone which has a metallic sound. Rearranged in 1952 as a suite concertante for piano and orchestra (OP. 278 b), this work presents three movements (Animé, Lent et Vif). This suite concertante was produced in 1949 with the Saint Louis symphonic orchestra conducted by V. Golschmann.[1]
