So much music in a single (fast-slow-fast) movement. This 13-minute concerto should be top priority for the serious marimbist. Perfect for a university concerto competition; perfect for the professional. The marimba part is difficult, but accessible, and the orchestra beautifully complements the soloist. A world-class composer demonstrates the height of her craft with this concerto.
