Program Notes

premiere: 1970, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Wilma Jensen, organ


"Five" meaning 5 movements entitled - "Diffraction, Diaphone, Diagram, Digression, and Dialogue". Very effective writing for this pair of instruments and only of modest difficulty. Should not be hard to rehearse for performance, but yet be most effective. The five movement are in contrasting textures and achieve a good balance between the organ and the marimba. Only 2 mallet writing is employed in the marimba part, and suggested mallet types are given for each movement. - James Moore[1]
