To the City


Product Description

By Richard Zarou. 
Written for two marimbas.

To the City explores the idea of stereo stage effects.  Texturally, the piece is in a homophonic fashion; one person plays the melody and the other plays the accompaniment.  A stereophonic feeling is created by switching roles between the marimbas.  Staging plays a large role within this piece.  The character of  the piece is best described as “sneaky.”  To the City is a piece that carries an aura of mystery with it.

The piece is based on a synthetic scale.  The scale is a Dorian scale with a raised fourth.  The scale gives the piece a chromatic jazz feel.  In chordal sections, a standard Dorian scale is used.
