Encore de Lírico
Originally conceived as a solo guitar work for John Couch titled De La Luz - In the Light as part of a set with a sister piece titled Sin Luz - Without Light.
With a feeling of quiet affirmation, the piece delicately unfolds with hints of jazz and folk sensibilities. Given the beauty and popularity of this piece, the composer has since re-arranged it for other instruments and re-named these versions as Encore de Lirico to distinguish them from the original solo guitar version.
Katrimba was commissioned by Canberra-based percussionist Katrina Leske to feature her wonderful Honduras rosewood Marimba. The piece nods towards the composer's jazz roots with an ostinato that superimposes groups of 2 and 4 notes over the pulse of 3.
A version for piano trio is also available.
