Abstract:
This document examines the Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra (1995) and the short solo marimba work, P.S. to a concerto (1995), by the Danish composer Anders Koppel. The focus is on the technical and musical performance problems for the marimbist in these works. There are two versions of the Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra: one with orchestral accompaniment and one with piano reduction. This document will focus on the orchestral version; however, there will be reference to the piano reduction. In standard concerto form, the three movements of the Concerto are in the order of fast, slow, fast. P.S. to a concerto is a short solo marimba work that lasts approximately 2-1/2 minutes. The intent of this document is to provide future performers and researchers (e.g., conductors) with a valuable resource for performing the Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra and P.S. to a concerto. Chapter 1 presents a biography of Anders Koppel. Chapter 2 discusses the marimba concerto repertoire, guidelines for the performance analysis, and an overview of the two marimba works. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 concentrate on each movement of the Concerto, and Chapter 6 discusses P.S. to a concerto.
