The Best of the Concord Band CD

Sonata for Marimba and Band

Peter Tanner

Sonata for Marimba and Band [notes from composer Peter Tanner] “was composed in 1957, emanating from an assignment in modal writing by Alan Hovhaness with whom I was studying at the time. The first performance was given by Mitchell Peters, a fellow student at the Eastman School of Music, and now principal percussionist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.” ... The Finale is a rapid-fire rondo based on a repeating note figure in the Phrygian mode. Near the end there is a cadenza which leads to a grandioso conclusion.

Recorded 1993/3/6, William Toland conducting.
