Eisenhower's Rondo (1974)

chamber percussion ensemble
Sound Clip - complete. The recording here is probably the premiere performance at Eisenhower College. As I recall, Dave Mancini and I on marimba, John Serry on drums, Ted Moore on triangel, and Steve Kujala (?) on flute. I don't remember who the violist was. Enjoy!


1974. The percussion battery consists of two marimbas, two hand drums, and triangle. This is my first composition for percussion ensemble, and was composed for John Serry, and a concert that he produced at Eisenhower College in New York state. It is based on rhythms that I heard on a recording of Bulgarian folk music. A really fun piece! Published by Keyboard Percussion Publications (www.mostlymarimba.com).
