Donald Skoog’s Water & Fire for solo marimba presents two contrasting movements describing these basic elements of life. Movement 1, Water, displays the undulations and smoothness of water with its flowing patterns and chorales. Movement 2, Fire, builds and rages uncontrollably just like a real fire. This is a great and very popular piece for the intermediate to advanced marimbist.
Water and Fire would be well suited for a student recital or jury.
