Hard. Designed for repertoire that requires superb articulation.
Marimba Dances by Australian composer Ross Edwards is one of the most popular and most frequently played pieces for solo marimba in the international repertiore. This light-hearted (though highly virtuosic) piece consists of two radiant dances framing an introspective, recitative-like interlude. Marimba Dances was first performed by Michael Askill at a concert in the Wollongong City Art Gallery in 1983. A recording of it can be found by Evelyn Glennie on her CD “Light in Darkness”.
