Abstract:
This document examines the marimba music of Dr. Daniel W. McCarthy. The focus is on his compositional techniques, his musical style, and his innovative textural and technical uses of the marimba as represented in the compositions: Rimbasly (1990), Concerto for Marimba, Percussion and Synthesizers (1992), Chamber Symphony for Marimba and Winds (1993), and Song of Middle Earth (1995). This discussion is directed toward the advanced marimba performer. Chapters one and two present a biography and a discussion of McCarthy's compositional style and technique--with focus on his compositional use of four-mallet marimba techniques. Chapter three presents his marimba compositions in chronological order and discusses performance requirements and style characteristics of each work.
