Program Notes

James Moore - Review (Winter 1978)

This is a very musically conceived moderately difficult college level, or difficult high school level, percussion ensemble. Eight percussionists plus piano are required using bells, xylophone, vibes, marimba, chimes, snare drum, cymbals, bass drum, and timpani. The score and parts are done in hand manuscript that could be more legible, but with a bit of effort all necessary data can be deciphered. Excellent writing for melodies percussion ensemble with support from rhythmic percussion instruments. Abundant contrasts in tempi and textures make the work very interesting from a listeners standpoint.
