by Francisco Perez
Instrumentation: Solo marimba (low A)*
*Includes optional notes for a 5-octave (low C) marimba.
Francisco Perez describes Lukas’ Lexicon as “a short study in chordal motion for the intermediate marimbist.” Musically, this motion is driven by a catchy groove, interspersed with more lyrical chorale phrases. These wildly contrasting moods are inspired by Perez’s cat, Lukas, who was adopted during the composer’s college years.
This work calls for quick changes of style and technique, providing a well-rounded and easily-listenable piece of repertoire for recitals, lessons, or contests!
This solo can also be found in The Blue Book - Volume 3 along with over 40 other solos for snare drum, drum set, mallet keyboard, and timpani.
Lukas’ Lexicon ships as a printed, professionally bound folio with a full color cover.
