Radium 88 written by Joshua Albert is a fast paced marimba duet for one 5.0 octave and one 4.3 octave marimba, accompanied by kick drum and an Anvil. The metal used is a personal choice, but RA88 is heavily influenced by the great works of David Lang, and Rudiger Pawassar. Radium is heavy metal number 88 on the periodic table of elements, highly reactive and volatile in large quantities. RA88 will be premiered live in late Spring 2019 and is currently available in both digital and hard copy format.
XY recommends this work for schools with advanced players on concerts where limited instruments are available.
