composition / chamber music / the old pond (version 3)

the old pond, version 3

Medium: Marimba/Piano
Publisher: Self-Published
Composed: 2005
Duration: 3:20

5-octave marimba


3-1/2 minute work written on the occasion of my grandfather's 90th birthday. Meant to capture and "reflect" on the many wonderful memories of fishing with my grandfather with bamboo poles and live worms in the old pond behind my grandparents' house in rural southern Virginia. Originally composed for solo piano, it has been reimagined here for marimba and piano at the request of Jeff Calissi and Rebecca McNair Calissi (Una Duo).
