Tyson-Cricket Sang and Set the Sun, A-M - Product Information

A Cricket Sang and Set the Sun by Blake Tyson is a beautiful, lyrical piece for solo marimba. The opening passages of the piece ebb and flow and create a very reflective mood.

"This work takes its title from an Emily Dickinson poem that begins, "The cricket sang, And set the sun." When I read these words, I was moved by the powerful ideas they evoked. It was not just the image of a beautiful and slowly shifting sunset that struck me, but the idea that something so small could affect something so large, that a cricket's song could transform day into night. Although the piece is not directly based on the poem, I have tried to capture the sense of fascination, inspiration and beauty that these opening lines create."

Very Beautiful

Comments:

This song is over all a great piece. And it shipped within 4 days so that's a plus! It's not too hard but it also challenges anyone starting out with 4 mallet grip, at least for me.

Fun

A fun little solo with some cool moments and a few key changes. A great intermediate solo for a high school freshman.
