Program Notes

Who does not know them: those terrible days when you really do nothing, as if you had got up with your left leg first. On a day like this you are not really useful for anything, somehow stand beside yourself and simply cannot get out of this state...

This, as expected, rather cumbersome and weird piece of music for mallet quintet (xylophone, vibraphone and 3 marimba) tells of such a day.
