by Robert McClure
Instrumentation: Marimba—low F
Wind Chimes Beneath a Summer Rain is a new marimba solo by Robert McClure which creates musical imagery that both begins and ends with a pastoral tranquility. Injected between the calm mood of these sections is a moment of uncertain intrigue leading into a more brisk ostinato section which requires a strong intermediate command of 4-mallet independence. Wind Chimes Beneath a Summer Rain is a touching and accessible piece that will engage audiences and offer soloists a chance to showcase their technique and expressive performance qualities.
