The Kudu (by Thom Hasenpflug)

Price: $8.00

Product Information

This single-movement programmatic work for solo marimba is a depiction of "the daily activities in the precarious life of the kudu", a type of antelope which dwells on the plains of Africa. From serene rubatos to panicked obligatos and running ostinatos, this piece promises adventure. A 4.6 marimba is required.
