An unusually lyrical work with a minimalistic influence. Based on Irish folk themes, "Tune for Mary 0." is a fine recital work that uses a blend of lateral sticking techniques to create melodic and accompanimental patterns.
A beautiful to berserk theme and variations, Variations is a large scale work in four sections that has advanced technical challenges, but is within the reach of a good four mallet player. Lyrical use of the one-handed roll in octaves for a principal melody.
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.
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.
