About the work
From the composer:
Vignettes for violin and marimba was composed intermittently between the time of the total eclipse in August 2017 and New Year’s Eve of the same year. It was my response to a request by violinist Marc Djokic and my life-partner, percussionist Beverley Johnston for a concert they planned to share together in May 2018. It was also a belated gift for Bev’s 60th birthday. The three vignettes are titled Memories of Danforth Avenue, Night Sky and Preadaptation. Even though they are arranged in this order, performers are welcome to reverse the order of the vignettes, depending on what larger message they wish to convey to their audience. The overall emotional message of this work changes significantly by reversing the sequence of the first and last vignette.
