Program Notes


This three-movement work for solo marimba is ideal for developing the four-mallet skills of an intermediate-level college marimbist. Briggs does an exceptional job of keeping his score free of awkward technical problems, and molds his musical ideas from patterns that "lie" very comfortably on the keyboard. He is also successful in keeping his music interesting and varied, moving from "quiet and reflective in mood" found in the first movement, through a second movement aptly titled "Lyrical," to some up-tempo sections in the third movement. Any or all of the three movements of this publication would be an excellent selection for a student marimbist's four-mallet repertoire list. - John R. Raush, October 1998[1]
