Instrumentation: • 1 marimba—low C
Justin Douté’s captivating marimba solo, Midnight Moon, was inspired by the mesmerizing and contemplative nature of a moonlit night. Originally intended as a lullaby, this piece incorporates as much space and musical silence as it does beautiful harmonies and lush chords. The overall form of the piece is ternary, with a fast, flowing middle section providing contrast to the spacious rubato sections that begin and end the piece. By the end of a performance of Midnight Moon, the audience should be reminded of the moon’s unending beauty.
Midnight Moon ships in a printed, professionally bound folio with a full color cover.
