Analysis: "Elegy for Alpha" is a monothematic work for the intermediate four-mallet marimbist performing on a 4 octave marimba. The composer takes the main melodic statement and manipulates it through the use of different stroke types (double vertical, single independent, single alternating and double lateral). This piece allows the performer to develop technical and musical skills for an overall successful experience in performance. The character of the work is reflected by the title, with a mournfully contemplative tone throughout." - Lisa Rogers Percussive Notes, June 2003.
