Three Marionette Dances

by Chad Cannon

Three short movements for marimba, cello, and clarinet. This piece takes as its inspiration the marionette theater of Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma), where puppets of exquisite design are accompanied by a small ensemble of Burmese instruments.

Performed by Cory Hills (percussion), Adrienne Geffen (clarinet), and Matt Cooker (cello).

Premiered at West Coast Composers' Forum, 2014.
