Program Note

In the year 2001 I did a tour through Taiwan sponsored by the Ju Percussion Group. During a concert there I shared the stage with the Amores Percussion Trio from Spain. For this occasion I decided to write a piece in the Spanish-Flamenco mood, so that I could perform it together with Amores during the concerts we would play together in Taiwan. Valencia reflects my impression from Spain and in particular the state of Valencia that I have visited several times. This marimba version is a written improvisation over the simple original score that contains only the melody with simple accompaniment.
