Program Note

Originally written for solo steel pan (lead), these pieces are also suitable for two mallet marimba. The first movement, Baroque, is a fugue like movement with some jazz flavor. The second movement, Meditative, is based on minimalist music and has a romantic melody that comes out of the repetitive patterns. The third movement, Impatient, is technically challenging, requiring double strokes in both hands.
