Program Notes

Written for famed Japanese marimba soloist Reiko Kono, this concerto-like work is accompanied by the full resources of the modern concert band. The movements are a romantic “Nocturne”, a gay, lilting “Scherzetto”, and a brilliant “Toccata” which is surprisingly set to a swing-boogie rhythmic background.

Concertino for Marimba and Winds was commissioned for and is dedicated to Reiko Kono with great warmth and affection.
