Dove’s delight | VIB-MBF DUO
Doves Delight by Jan Freicher is a hip duet for vibraphone and marimba. This jazzy piece combines blues harmonies with heavily syncopated rhythms and an energetic pulse that constantly moves forward, creating a fun jam session for everybody involved.
The opening section features a bluesy vibraphone over the marimba driving the bus. The middle section becomes much more note-dense with the marimba leading the charge, leading into another very island-inspired area that features melodic marimba. The tune opens like it begins.
Add this to your recital or simply work it up for a jazz quartet – its a ton of fun and everybody will enjoy it. To add that extra oomph, you can include a drum set and possibly an electric bass. Doves Delight won 3rd place in the 2008 PAS Italy Composition Contest.
