Program Notes


Four Sea Fragments is for multiple percussion, including 2 log drums, 5 temple blocks, 2 cymbals, vibes, marimba, 3 antique cymbals, and clarinet. Frazeur, a well-known percussionist, knows how to write effectively for percussion. The piece is musically conceived with some lovely melodic and coloristic writing for keyboard instruments and clarinet. Four Sea Fragments should be an exciting recital piece for an intermediate to moderately advanced college player. The music is generally quite legible, although instructions clutter the page in places and I find it confusing that the clarinet and percussion exchange lines on the score for the 3rd movement.[1]
