Following recent disruption, Royal Mail are now restoring some international services. While we still cannot despatch orders immediately via “Standard Delivery” services, we now expect full international capacity to be restored shortly. Until then, for any urgent orders of ‘In Stock’ items we would still recommend customers select Courier Delivery within the checkout and your order will be sent out by an alternative carrier. All UK deliveries are shipped as normal.

Nagoya Marimbas (1994) is somewhat similar to my pieces from the 1960s and ‘70s in that there are repeating patterns played on both marimbas, one or more beats out of phase, creating a series of two part unison canons. However, these patterns are more melodically developed, change frequently and each is usually repeated no more than three times, similar to my more recent work. The piece is also considerably more difficult to play than my earlier ones and requires two virtuosic performers.
