Online Review

Composed in a fashion that will permit the intermediate four-mallet performer to grow technically and musically, "Starscape" is a 128- measure unaccompanied solo for a 4-octave marimba. Rhapsodic in its compositional structure, "Starscape" begins with a five-measure adagio section of rolls on tone clusters before moving into a vivo section that articulates rhythmically the basic chordal cells of the opening introduction. The next section is rhythmically slower (eighth notes as opposed to sixteenth-note figures), and this melds into a final sixteenth-note section that uses the opening melodic figure in contrary motion to its opening figure. The brief ending is chordal and dynamically very soft. Peters' composition is certain to find its place in the intermediate, unaccompanied four-mallet marimba literature. - Jim Lambert, August 1999 [1]
