Marimba

Mallet Palette

$20.00

“The variety of materials in each section make this a worthy composition, which is well within the level of an advanced high school or young undergraduate student.”-Percussive NotesThe composer’s taste for consonance and dissonance is evidenced by his playful bantering between pentatonic, chromatic, minor and major. Agogic and dynamic accents enhance colorful pops of dissonance that permeate the otherwise tonal realm and contribute to the intensity and forward movement. This piece ends where it began, with a finishing touch.
