Program Notes

Review

The "three phases" of this marimba quartet for college-level students (revealed in the titles to its three movements) are "distress," "melancholy" and "relief." The entire first movement is developed contrapuntally using an eight-note bass melody set in octaves and presented in fugue-like fashion. This eight-note "theme" is heard in various voices and guises (including inversions) throughout the movement. In the second movement, several chromatic motives are woven into a polyphonic fabric. The third movement features a two-bar ostinato and a lilting rhythm pattern set in 5/8 meter. The work is effectively scored, and should display the full tonal spectrum of the marimba ensemble. The publication contributes to the substantive literature for a genre that is not overburdened with good material. - John R. Raush, April 1997[1]
