  • Prelude 1.5 for solo timpani is a contrast in minimalistic ideas and harmonic intentions inspired by J.S. Bach. It consists of an introduction of rising fourths, computer-like passages, long tones, and an odd waltz filled with irregular rhythms, accents, and technical challenges.

  • This piece takes its inspiration from several places. One is the Gypsy music of countries such as Hungary, Bulgaria, Turkey and Armenia. This piece is specifically more Hungarian because it uses the Hungarian scale, which is very clearly played out. This "gypsy" music often features two solo instruments playing in thirds, either violins or clarinets for...

  • Rhapsody No. 1 was written in the spring of 2001 for my good friend and colleague Matthew Bassett. The version here is a slightly modified version as it was originally premiered in 2001. It takes an irregular (thus a Rhapsody) form of many intervals of slow and fast sections with a middle slow section as a resting point. A tonality was sought by employing...

  • A Christmas Overture is a joyful medley of Christmas carols for large percussion orchestra. Orfaly's masterful arrangements are sectionalized and may be trimmed to make the piece shorter. The featured carols are "O Christmas Tree,” “Little Drummer Boy,” “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” (a la Mexico), “Silent Night,” “Carol on the Bells,” and “The Twelve...

  • Structure Set was originally written in the Spring of 1997 for the Preparatory percussion ensemble at the Cleveland Institute of Music. The version here has been re-written but contains much of the original material. Most of the musical ideas are derived from the rhythmic cell of the first bar of music. Careful attention should be taken to always find a...

  • Up-tempo, audience-friendly piece that could be programmed to open or close a recital or concert in a lively manner! unlike many rags wherein the xylophone is truly the "solo" voice, in Old Pueblo Rag, three voices share prominent melodic material.

  • PROGRAM NOTES It is my intention that there be a color difference between the two solo xylophones either by using different mallets or by using one wood xylophone and one synthetic xylophone. In either event the difference should be subtly noticeable. At many times, off-beats are included in the lowest marimba part. I have done this to make the...

  • Contemporary rag - unlike many rags wherein the xylophone is truly the "solo" voice, in Cactus Hip Rag, three voices share prominent melodic materials - xylophone, vibraphone and marimba I. While the xylophone part contains the “flashiest” melodic and rhythmic figures, all the parts have interesting musical features. Up-tempo, audience-friendly piece that...

  • Work for Copper Wired started in the early spring of 2015, and even though the work was entered into the PAS contest for that year, the idea of such a piece had been on the composer’s mind for quite a while. Even though the work contains no programmatic ideas, it is in some part inspired by Edgard Varèse’s Poem Électronique . The "low bell” tolling sound...
