PROGRAM NOTES

This piece is the piano reduction of the orchestration of the popular “Concerto for Marimba, Percussion, and Synthesizers,” the most performed work of it’s genre, ever. The three movements, I. Melismatic, II. InaMst, and III. Rokit!, demonstrate an exciting ensemble between the soloist and orchestra featuring state-of-the-art four-mallet technique for the marimba soloist.

The title “Underwood” refers to percussionist Ruth Underwood who performed and recorded with Frank Zappa in the late 1970’s and 80’s. The unusual means of featuring virtuosic keyboard percussion in a rock/jazz setting was an inspiration for much of McCarthy’s percussion and mallet music. This concerto is dedicated to her.

His music is recorded on Centaur, d'note Classics, Gesparo, and Klavier Records. A recipient of numerous awards and grants in composition, he has received four nominations for the Pulitzer Prize and the Grawemeyer Award.

McCarthy is currently Chair of the Composition and Theory Section at the University of Akron School of Music. He is the founder and director of the American New Arts Festival in Akron, Ohio, founder of the Midwest Composers Forum, and former co-chair of the Indiana State University Contemporary Music Festival.
