El-Dabh-Secrets of the Sky and Earth-M - Product Information

Secrets of the Sky and Earth was conceived as an explorataion of the vibrational possibilities of the marimba. Performance of this piece requires the player to be extremely in-tune with their instrument and the space they are performing in and strive to create a connection between these and with the listeners.
Secrets of the Sky and Earth was written by Halim El-Dabh at the request of Blake Tyson. Tyson was just accepted into graduate school at Eastman School of Music when he contacted El-Dabh and asked him to write a piece for him to premier at Eastman.
This piece calls for multiple roll types (especially independent rolls) and requires the player to be very smooth when changing techniques. This is an excellent performance piece that will connect with the audience as well as show off much technical proficiency.
Halim El-Dabh's compositions form a bridge between the East and the West.Drawing inspiration from his work as an ethnomusicologist in Africa as well as from the compositional traditions of Europe and the Americas, he writes with a unique voice that is simultaneously ancient and modern. He has written symphonies, operas, ballets, choral works, electronic works and a wide variety of chamber music.
Secrets of the Sky and Earth was premiered by Blake Tyson on March 21, 1996 at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York.
