This concerto is truly an exciting and challenging work for the soloist including virtuosic material on both pitched and non-pitched percussion instruments. This work will captivate any audience with its musical contrasts and fascinate them with the visually stimulating choreography in the soloist's performance.
The concept behind "Transitions" is that of a single day and the gradual shifts and changes within it. There are three distinct but related segments in the piece in a slow-fast-slow format of uninterrupted movements entitled Dawn, Day, and Dusk. Within the faster middle movement is a percussion cadenza. The melodic and harmonic content of "Transitions" is based almost entirely on the B half-whole octatonic scale. The opening pitches in the solo vibraphone form the primary motive of the work and bring continuity to the piece as a whole. After the first statement, this motive is immediately restated in the accompaniment, later used as punctuation tones in the cadenza, and finally restated in retrograde in the final measures of the work, again in the solo vibraphone, as an indication of the inevitable connection to the start of a new day. "Transitions" is truly an exciting and challenging work for the soloist including virtuosic material on both pitched and non-pitched percussion instruments. This work will captivate any audience with its musical contrasts and fascinate them with the visually stimulating choreography in the soloist's performance. -JG.
