Product details

These three short solo marimba works came into being at the request of Australian percussionist Claire Edwardes, and were composed over the summer of 2020-21.

They are intended to offer attractive and suitable repertoire options for late high school and early tertiary music students wanting to explore contemporary Australian music.

Each work endeavours to not be overly intellectual, but simply responds to the particular feeling or image indicated by the title. That said, there are plenty of 'compositional devices' embedded within each work, making them excellent studies for musical analysis.

Meditations and Hymns is a contemplative and gentle exploration of a simple melodic line, repeated in varying harmonic and textural contexts through arch form (ABCBA).

Fancy and Flight is structured in a lose ternary form, and gains most of its harmonic and melodic material from various applications of the Perfect 5th interval.

Scamper and Scoot incorporates rapid note alteration, fast and virtuosic scalic runs, surprising rhythmic irregularity and a cheeky hidden quote, all contained within a 3-minute whirlwind that demonstrates the possibilities of 2-mallet marimba playing.

The works can be played as a set in the order suggested here, or as individual dances.
