Description

Clifton Taylor’s Concertpiece for Marimba and Wind Ensemble is an exciting and upbeat concerto for solo marimba with wind ensemble accompaniment. Largely in 6/8 & 3/4 time, the musical material of the piece is largely motivic, with various opportunities for the marimba soloist to showcase their abilities. Stylistically, the piece has a fusion/pop style, taking its influences from the music of The Pat Metheny Group.

The solo part is appropriate for an advanced undergraduate or faculty member while the ensemble parts are playable by a high school band and can be easily put together, making it accessible to a wide variety of both school and university programs. It contains the technical complexity admired by soloists with an overall sound and feel that will be accessible to the general public. For a more intimate setting, this piece is also available in an arrangement for marimba and percussion quintet.
