Composed in 1952. Published in three parts, the complete suite of eleven pieces is 20 to 25 minutes long. Individual movements, however, may be played separately. “I had a great time playing these pieces and liked them very much…” (Review in American Recorder, November 2007) Written for advanced players in 1952, but, with practice, accessible to today’s upper intermediate players.
Music for Marionettes was favorably reviewed in American Recorder, the journal of the American Recorder Society, November 2007.
