Programme Note:
A Very Welcome is a work written in honor of my wife to celebrate the birth of our son in 2008. Stylistically, it is a reflective tonal piece featuring rapid arpeggiated gestures and pulsing ostinato figures. The piece began as a technical etude to develop the use of extended 10th intervals in each hand in four-mallet marimba technique. As a result, several passages require wide spreads of the arms as well as within the mallets in each hand, which elicits a sense of virtuosity based on delicacy rather than on power or speed.
