Medium/Advanced Vibraphone Solo
by Aaron Trewitt
Instrumentation: Solo vibraphone
Aaron Trewitt’s For the Fleeting Moment was written in commemoration of his and his wife’s ten year anniversary. Trewitt describes his composition as “a meditation on a the expeditious nature of life’s own fleeting moments.” Trewitt attempts to evoke a sense of playful nostalgia from the lightheartedness of the main theme, to the country-inspired groove in the reprise. From a performance standpoint, there are many opportunities for the soloist to develop their skills in mallet dampening, a tricky but effective way to control the articulation of the vibraphone.
For the Fleeting Moment ships in a printed, professionally bound folio with a full color cover.
