Ford-Afta-Stuba! (SP)-M - Product Information

Afta-Stuba! is a sequel to my 1988 composition, Stubernic. Like Stubernic, Afta-Stuba! Is written for three players on one low A marimba. This composition can be performed after Stubernic or independently. A few Stubernic motives are utilized in Afta-Stuba!, and the main theme at bar 20 is derived from the first three notes of the theme of Stubernic. In this piece, each player plays in every register of the instrument at different times in the music. The work calls for the players to alternate positions behind the marimba, and even play the instrument from the front side. My goal for Afta-Stuba! was to combine quality music with a little fun to celebrate the potential of the marimba. t was premiered at the 2000 PASIC in Dallas, Texas with Christopher Deane, Shawn Hart and myself as performers.
