For Euphonium and Marimba



This musical work, commissioned by the Swiss duo, “Synthesis,” of Raphael Christen, marimba, and Thomas Rüedi, euphonium, was written in July 2007 and was premiered on April 20, 2008 in Munsterlingen, Switzerland. 


The piece follows a lyrical ballad arch-form A-B-C-B-A and is richly colored by Japanese musical idioms. The title means that this piece is a gift of friendship from far away Japan to celebrate the twinkling nova “Synthesis.”
