Composer: Kevin Man
Instrumentation: Marimba (4.3 or 5 octave, four or two mallets).
Grading: A.M.E.B. 8 |ABS 5 (Advanced)
Written for the wedding of a friend of the composer, Lullaby seeks to explore the organ-like timbre of the marimba. Tonal, highly expressive and approachable, this work adds musical depth to the marimba chorales currently available in the market. Note: this work can either be performed as a solo four-mallet work or a split-staff duet for two, two-mallet players. Either version can be performed on a 4.3 or 5 octave marimba.
