Program Notes Contemplations at the Fountain (Double Concerto for Vibraphone, Marimba and Orchestra) was written in the summer of 2010 for the husband/wife percussion duo Hob-beats (Magdalena Kordylasińska and Miłosz Pękala). The world premiere of the work took place during my jubilee concert in November of the same year. The title of the work was born at a fountain near which I experienced a palette of different emotions - thoughtfulness, doubts and hope. The duo Hob-beats performed the piece twice more with other symphony orchestras in Poland. – MM
