Tanaka-Two Movements for Marimba-M - Product Information

Toshimitsu Tanaka composed Two Movements for Marimba in 1965 and with it won a prize at the 1968 National Arts Festival for the Centenary of the Meiji period, and the Supreme Prize at the 1969 Japanese National Arts Festival. The piece is split into two movements. The first is driven by a strong rhythmic pulse and its ever-changing meter structure. The second movement opens with a mysterious chorale followed by a furious second half of the movement that builds to a very exciting close. This is a very popular piece for solo marimba that has been played by some of the world's greatest marimba virtuosos. A great performance piece for the advanced marimbist.

Two Movements for Marimba

Comments:

Incredible piece and fun to play when you get it down. Very Contemporary sounding though, a lot of dissonance especially in the choral in the second movement. Its cool though because despite the dissonance you can actually sing along with the piece. It can pose a challenge to work on though because there are a good amount accidentals so you can learn the piece wrong with out even knowing it. Work on it slowly and make sure you learn it right. The first however is definitely a blast to play. The tempo mark is Allegro-130 but once you get a grasp of it you can definitely push the tempo a bit. The second movement opens up with a Lento choral and then recaps back to a similar style as the first movement. Its 8 pages in total. Feel free to email me about it.
