Percussive Arts Society (USA) ‘Percussive Notes’ review (Tom Morgan)
"This is a lovely, short work for 5-octave marimba in a neo-baroque style...This well-crafted piece is idiomatic to the 5-octave marimba, making good use of its warm timbre. Students with strong technique and a mature sense of phrasing and dynamic control will enjoy performing Prelude for Marimba.”
