Composed for and premiered by noted marimbist Katarzyna Mycka, "Hurricane's Eye" is a challenging and dramatic solo work that should find its way into the standard repertoire for advancing students and professionals.
Written for Leigh Howard Stevens and She-e Wu, this jazzy piece requires two advanced players and two 5.0 octave instruments. A "must play" if you have a friend ready and willing to take on the challenge with you.
First prize winner of the 1987 Festival of New American Music composition contest. Lydeka is a medium-difficult three-movement solo marimba work that uses many of the new techniques such as one-handed rolls, playing on the nodes and sequential sticking patterns.
This work is an unsung hero of the marimba quartet literature. It has not gotten its well-deserved circulation through the percussion community because it was unavailable for so long.Now available in a clearly engraved edition with single sheet 11 x 17 inch parts with a spiral-bound score.
