The “Preludio Nº 1” was written in Odessa - Ukraine in November 2008.
Technically the work is intended for the study of the tremolo in the marimba with four mallets. The diversity of tremolo techniques, and the musical sense of the composition, allows the performer to choose the appropriate sound for the interpretation and understanding of the work.
The “Preludio Nº1” has a calm and melancholic character. It describes the feeling of those people who enter our lives, with the sole purpose of making us grow as people. And although life itself is a constant growth, these people were fundamental and contributed to what we are now. This work is dedicated to a great life friend: Li Xiang.
