Medium/Advanced Vibraphone Solo
by Benjamin Holmes
Instrumentation: Solo vibraphone (standard 3-octaves)
Snow Globe by Benjamin Holmes is a solo for vibraphone drawing its inspiration from wind-up snow globes and music boxes. The musical material of this piece consists of different styles and characters, ranging from improvisatory jazz-like figures to a delicate and catchy waltz-style melody.
The performer must combine advanced left hand technique and dexterity with rhythmic independence to draw out the subtle melody over dense, moving harmonic accompaniment. Snow Globe features a wide array of technical demands for the performer while offering a memorable theme and musical fulfillment for listeners.
Snow Globe ships in a printed, professionally bound folio with a full color cover.
