Concerto for Marimba and Percussion Ensemble by Howard J. Buss was composed in 2017 and is dedicated to Robert McCormick. The percussion ensemble uses 4 players. This work is comprised of 3 continuous, unnamed movements that follow a haunting and somewhat mysterious introduction. References to the opening phrases of the introduction are made throughout the composition. The first movement is in two main parts: The first resembles a chain of joyous episodes, each flowing into the next as the musical narrative unfolds. This gives way to a series of passages that become increasingly developmental. Obvious references to the introduction are interspersed with elements of the first section as well as new material. The second movement is in a lively 6/8. It is in ternary form features a substantial marimba cadenza in the central section. The finale movement revives the joyful character of the first and includes a short intense passage influenced by jazz before building to a rousing finish. (15') Grade V.
