scenes for summertime is a 4 mallet vibe solo of intermediate/advanced. The piece is something of a short story; the 1st, 3rd, and final movements are shorter, and are somewhat easier, while the 2nd and 4th are more substantial and contain some of the more difficult material. There is a clear narrative to the piece, though hopefully everyone will derive their own specific meanings.
Summer is a time that evokes a deep nostalgia for many people. Whether it be adventures had, friends made, or a brief tryst, summer holds special and secret memories for all of us.
scenes for summertime was awarded 2nd place in the 2011 PAS Composition Contest.
