Programme Note
Nico Muhly Beaming Music (2002),
Beaming Music (2002) is, at its heart, about small rhythmic cells transforming themselves into large, open chords. While this is most evident in the section immediately following the marimba solo 2/3 of the way through, the idea of something small blossoming into a huge chord pervades the piece. The title refers not only to the various metric subdivisions of the main material, but also to the percussionist who commissioned it and his sunny disposition during each stage of this piece's conception, rehearsal, and performance. Beaming Music should last 9 minutes and is dedicated to Chris Thompson.
