Nocturnal Dance (solo marimba)




Written by Jesse Monkman for solo marimba.

Nocturnal Dance is the latest 4-mallet marimba solo by percussionist/composer, Jesse Monkman, from Boston, MA. It explores a variety of contrasting moods from lyrical to intense, and calls upon the performer to explore their own expressive and unique characteristics to enhance the musical interpretation.

Perfect for recitals, festivals, or jury exams, Nocturnal Dance is challenging for average 4-mallet players while offering musical accessibility for audiences. Requires a 4 1/2 octave marimba (low F).

This piece comes as a professionally bound folio, and is not available as downloadable merchandise.
