Programme Note:
This piece is written for mallet percussion and strings. It is in a classical fast-slow-fast form featuring the marimba in the two outer movements and the vibraphone in the middle one. After a moody introduction with the strings doubled by tremolos on the marimba, the first movement focuses on a aggressive rhythmic figure occasionally broken by chordal sequences. The second movement is lyrical with melody being passed back and forth between the strings and vibraphone. The third movement utilizes a repeated cluster in the strings accompanied by continuous arpeggiation on the marimba.

Premiere Information:
12 January 2016, Westminster United Church, Winnipeg, Manitoba
Victoria Sparks; Percussion, Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, Alain Trudel; cond.
