    Program Notes
    Parallel Dimensions is a double concerto for percussion septet. The piece opens with a colorful blend of percussive textures which immediately captures your attention. The two featured percussionists on Vibraphone and Xylophone quickly take over and trade off several “feature” sections, sometimes in unison figures and occasionally playing off of one another. After a brief transition, a complete color change is introduced with the soloists on Timbales and Congas and more of a “groove” is introduced. Once again the two featured players square off against one another with a few intersections of material as their own musical lines wander into each other from time to time. After several short bursts from each player there is a return to the “A” material on Vibraphone and Xylophone. The piece ends with a flurry of excitement and a burst of speed! - JKN
