Review

This smooth, flowing composition for four mallets is equally appropriate for recital hall performance or within the church setting. It is contemporary in sound, yet is tonally oriented, with smooth although sometimes unusual resolving of dissonance. This writer finds the work to be sight-readable. Yet the techniques needed to perform it are of a moderately advanced level: 1) a constant flow from two to four mallets, 2) a fair degree of mallet independence, 3) competency in rapid reading of accidentals, 4) mature understanding of how to control dynamic, tempo, and phrasing concepts. Mature high school students and college majors will find it a pleasant addition to their reportoires. The printing is clear and well-spaced. The unusual instructions and notations are precisely explained. - Linda Pimentel 1979[1]
