  • Item Details

    Lunar Suite by Otoemon Ayahiro Sumi is am interesting suite for Marimbas and Piano. Each of the four movements features a slightly different instrumentation, allowing for each movement to have its own identity while still being an integral part of the overall work.

    Movement One is entitled Lunar Prelude and is for solo marimba. This movement is in 6/8 time and features a smooth and lyrical melody.

    Movement Two, entitled Lunar Scape is written for marimba and piano. The movement opens with a melodic motive being played by the piano that is later picked up by the marimba. The slow and serene melody gradually builds to a more energetic sixteenth-note section. Then, after a chorale-like interlude Lunar Scape ends similarly to how it began, with the rhythms gradually slowing until they are gone completely.

    Movement Three, Lunar Lightis a short piano that has call backs to the first movement.

    The final movement, Lunar Walk has the largest instrumentation, featuring all three marimbas and piano. The final movement, like most finales, is much faster and more energetic than the previous three, featuring constant sixteenth-notes in the marimba 2 and 3 parts. Meanwhile, the piano and marimba 1 play longer, syncopated melodic lines over the drone of the other two marimbas. After a gradual dynamic build, this movement ends with a big, unison rhythmic figure that ends the suite with great force.

    Instrumentation: Three Marimbas and Piano

    Difficulty: Advanced
