Frolic, for solo marimba, captures the many playful moods of this beautiful instrument.  Mischievous, lyrical and sustained passages showcase the variety of expression that can be produced on the marimba.  I wrote this piece for Kelly Merka Nelson in a Czech palace while studying in Prague this summer at the 2009 Czech-American Summer Music Institute.
