Advanced Marimba Solo
by Thomas R. Marceau
Instrumentation: 5-octave (low C) marimba
"Beautiful chaos" is how composer Thomas R. Marceau and his wife often refer to their two oldest boys. In this advanced work for solo marimba, Marceau intricately weaves two lines into relationships at once disjunctive and harmonius. Tender, charming, and full of life, My Beautiful Chaos will challenge the performer to the highest levels of musicianship and 4-mallet mastery and leave a lasting impression on the listener.
My Beautiful Chaos was originally commissioned by marimba virtuosi Gordon Stout and Larissa Venzie. It ships in a printed, professionally bound folio with a full color cover.
