Back to his Musical Roots

For his latest Origin Records release, Tom Collier Plays Haydn, Mozart, Telemann and Others (May 2012), Percussion and Jazz Studies Chair Tom Collier has arranged works mostly composed for two violins and has adapted them for marimba and vibraphone. His first encounter with music for marimba occurred in the late 1950’s when he learned from transcriptions of great violin pieces, some of the only published music available for mallet instruments at the time. This recording marks Collier’s return to his earliest musical roots as a student.
