A spirited multi percussion feature with mallet ensemble. With contrasting sections of mysterious melodies and rhythmic ferocity, this work has it all.
Shadows is based on a poem of the same name by Stanley Leonard:
Moon shadows, move mysteriously across the dark landscape.
Sun shadows, dance in the light.
Morning shadows, shift night into day with peaceful motion.
Evening shadows, capture all that has been, now fade away.
