Maslanka-Variations on Lost Love-M - Product Information

Variations on Lost Love by David Maslanka is based on a poem by Robert Graves called "Lost Love". The piece is broken up into 4 sections: Theme (A beautiful and morose melody), Part 1 (A variation on the theme, now accompanied by rich chords and interspersed with melodic 'play'), Part 2 (Now using ideas developed in Part I, the theme and its variations are combined into an eerie dance), & Part 3 (Like the quirky movements of bugs, the theme is now disjointed and awkward...then more calming and playful...then relentless and racing.). This would be a very appropriate piece for an undergraduate or graduate recital as it incorporates many of the essential 4-mallet marimba techniques (double lateral rolls, independent rolls, etc.). Originally written for Leigh Howard Stevens, this piece was also edited by him.

Instrumentation: Solo marimba (4-mallets, 4.3 octaves)
Difficutly: Grade 5+

Comments:

If you are serious about marimba performance, your sights should be set on this piece of music. Beyond using advanced techniques (in example: specific roll types notated, octave position requirement and quick tempo of the latter movements) the music is highly impactful and emotional. If you have ever loved and lost, you will understand how this piece speaks to your soul beyond what words could ever do.
