Rosauro-Concerto #2 for Marimba & Orchestra (PN red.)-M/PN - Product Information

The Concerto No.2 for Marimba and Orchestra was originally written by Ney Rosauro for five octave marimba and full symphony orchestra. The work was composed during the summer of 2001 and was sponsored by a grant from the University of Miami. The concerto is dedicated to the marimba virtuoso Keiko Abe. The concerto is written in three movements:

I) Water Running in High Mountain, has two contrasting themes and depicts the way water makes its path down rocky mountain slopes.

II) Reflections and Dreams, starts with a quote from J.S. Bach and develops into a romantic and somewhat mystical atmosphere. Later, a new theme in a lively and contrasting tempo is introduced, which serves as a motive for a fugato movement that is developed before the main themes return.

III) Walking on Clouds, has a lively tempo, but its soft melody and rhythmic structure in a 5/4 meter evokes an image of music coming from the clouds.
