An intriguing, engaging, and challenging piece. Gillingham's Concerto is a must-try for all marimbists! The breakneck first movement sets a rapid pace for the turbulent musical passages throughout. Musical themes return in the second movement, but much slower with a delicate ensemble accompaniment. The lively third movement flirts with meter changes and mixed meter to create a spritely feel to the movement leading to the solo cadenza and finale.
