Five Pieces (solo marimba) – PDF
Music Sheet: Five Pieces (solo marimba), Pius Cheung – Downloadable PDF Version
These pieces were my first attempt at twelve tone music. The tone row for these pieces is comprised on three sequences of four note motifs/cells, which can also be found in many of my other works. Though these pieces are ‘twelve tone’, I don’t consider them as ‘atonal’, since my treatment of the twelve tone row is quite tonal.
