  • Item Details

    Delicate and ethereal, Moonrise is a piece written for seven percussionists on pitched instruments. Each individual part is moderate in difficulty, and all members of the ensemble must have a very strong sense of musicality in order to play together in this often rubato work.

    Moonrise is written in two movements with no pause in between, and would make a lovely counterpoint to heavier, more aggressive works on any percussion ensemble concert.
    • Instrumentation
      • Two 4.3 Octave Marimbas
      • 5 Octave Marimba
      • Two Vibraphones
      • Glockenspiel
      • Crotales - 2 Octaves
    • Duration - 9:00
    From the composer: Moonrise is about the moments when everything changes, when something we've seen as ordinary suddenly becomes inspirational, when something we've thought was average suddenly becomes amazing, when we can see, and hear, what we have always missed before. Moonrise is dedicated to the memory of my grandparents, Carl and Gertrude Thomas.

    The piece is in two movements, performed without a pause. The first is entitled The Moon Holds My Heart, and the second, which is in many ways a reflection of the first, is called The First Time I Saw the Moon.
