Review

Scored for four players using: vibes, glockenspiel, brass and glass wind chimes, two small tam-tams, large tam, four anvil plates, four brakes drums, two triangles, maracas, temple blocks, four tom-toms, claves, castanets, and suspended cymbal. Interesting mood is created in quasi-programatic sound colors. Innovative staging and lighting may be added as desired. - Staff (Winter 1972)[1]
