ABOUT THE PIECE:
Tolling of the Marshmallows
Dedicated to Kate and Mackenzie, this beautiful duet leaves the audience wondering for whom the marshmallow tolls. The marimba part demands extreme, ambidextrous control with two mallets, with constant sixteenths motoring through, hand-to-hand and diddles, and gentle four-mallets at the end. The saxophone line demands smooth dynamic control with long sustained notes in the upper register.
This piece is great for high school or collegiate recitals.
