Snowman

Horn & Percussion
13 minutes | 1996
Score 13 pages

This music was composed during several large snowfalls in the Winter of 1995-96 and completed on Valentine's Day. A moody work, full of nostalgia, especially in the closing pages, it depicts the gradual demise of the title character. The virtuosic percussion part centers around vibraphone and marimba, but includes many quick changes to other mallet instruments as well as bass drum and tam-tam.
