Description

Brian Blume’s Three Pieces for Marimba began as an exercise in improvisation. It then grew into three through-composed works, each with a wide range of techniques and characteristics which highlight the unique versatility of the instrument when executed by a sensitive performer.

The musical material of this challenging marimba solo was influenced by such renowned composers as J.S. Bach, Arnold Schoenberg, Anton Webern, and Béla Bartók. Each movement was intended to be performed in succession but may be performed separately as single movements or in pairs. Though each movement is clearly singular and unique, the discerning listener will perceive motives and variations of these motives throughout all three pieces.


Three Pieces for Marimba ships in a printed, professionally bound folio with a full color cover.

Instrumentation

5-octave marimba (low C)
