Three pomegranates : for two marimbas eight hands / Carl Vine.

Library shelf no. 785.684312/VIN 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

These three short movements are extracted from my Sonata for Piano Four Hands (2009). It dawned on me while watching Synergy!play music for a quartet on two grand marimbas that this material was nicely comprised to fit its percussive sibling. On closer examination almost!half of the original score could be used with little alteration.
The three movements I've used are called!Deuces,!Waltz!and!Toccata. Collectively they don't confirm to any of the models normally used for collections of short pieces, being uniformly neither dances, bagatelles, intermezzi, nocturnes, studies, preludes, ! impromptus or mazurkas. It finally dawned on me that they could only be pomegranates.
