Program Notes

Valse Triste by Andrew Thomas is a four mallet solo scored for 5 octave marimba. This piece was commissioned and premiered by Simon Boyar. The performer who learns Valse triste will have to learn the following three techniques:
1) Drumming rhyhms in mallets 2 & 3 (inner mallets)
2) Similar Drumming rhythms played by each hand individually
3) The performance of complex linear scales and arpeggios at great speed with one hand while the other hand plays complex harmony - using the mallets in the spirit with which the piano uses fingers
