"No letter that could be sent deserves to go undelivered."
- Violet Evergarden, main character of anime series Violet Evergarden
Violet is my first ever vibraphone solo, adding to my catalogue of usually marimba dominated
works. Violet was written for and premiered by my friend Carissa Soares.
The title Violet reflects on an anime protagonist named Violet Evergarden, from the popular series Violet Evergarden, and her selfless desire to always help and eventually bring closure to people's stories that she encounters in her own journey for self-discovery.
Violet reflects the ideas of helping bring happiness to others in all situations, with the main
'positive' theme being repeated in various keys and permutations throughout the piece,
while also being iterated in different manners ranging from calm and peaceful, to radiant
and joyous, before ending on a more solemn and reflective note.
Violet requires a 3.0 octave vibraphone. You will receive one (1) PDF file with the score.
