L+M Duo at Constellation

L+M Duo presents their inaugural season closer! Featuring the world premiere of a new work my Aaron Jay Myers, composer and executive director of Boston’s Equilibrium concert series.

L+M Duo is a marimba+piano duo featuring Laurel Black (marimba+small percussion) and Marianne Parker (piano+toy piano). They exist simply because they believe more people need to fall for the lustrous combination of marimba and piano, and discover the sonic possibilities it holds. In addition to commissioning new works for their instrumentation, L+M reimagines some of the most important works of the past by creating and presenting their own arrangements. In their inaugural season, L+M has commissioned two new works for marimba and piano, premiered their own arrangement of William Grant Still’s Suite for Violin and Piano, as well as an exclusive new arrangement of Jacob TV’s “The Body of your Dreams” by Chicago’s Jose Riojas.
