About

'Di Primavera' for guitar and marimba was inspired by a trip to Italy, an astonishing place that overflows with artistry in every aspect of its culture. "Di Primavera" ('of Spring') is reminiscent of warm spring breezes inviting a late afternoon thunderstorm in the Tuscan hills, the lusciousness of Botticelli's painting 'Primavera', and echoes of a melodic idea derived from Monteverdi's fourth book of madrigals.
