ABOUT THE PIECE

Marimba Dances by Australian composer Ross Edwards is one of the most popular and most frequently played pieces for solo marimba in the international repertiore. This light-hearted (though highly virtuosic) piece consists of two radiant dances framing an introspective, recitative-like interlude. Marimba Dances was first performed by Michael Askill at a concert in the Wollongong City Art Gallery in 1983. A recording of it can be found by Evelyn Glennie on her CD “Light in Darkness”.
