Quick Overview

Commissioned by marimbist Nancy Zeltsman, Jing Marimba uses characteristic melodic phrases from traditional Beijing opera, building an overall musical structure carefully based on Confucian Golden Mean proportions, with a structural map provided in the composer’s preface to illustrate the carefully-planned ratios in the musical form.
