This piece was written as a homage to Schubert in his anniversary year. All the rhythms have been loosely derived from The Trout, either the song or the Quintet. The percussion instruments used are divided into five groups. Except for the third group, which comprises marimba (used by both players) and mark tree only, each group comprises 5 instruments. On the full score, each instrument has a separate line, although grouped by bar lines. The rehearsal marks are for practicality as well as reflecting musical phrases. They act as visual markers when the players are transferring to and from the marimba, which requires a separate music stand. A coma indicates the end of a phrase where a fraction of time could be taken to assist with a change of instrument or, if desired, a change of sticks. However it is envisaged that the whole piece could be played on one set of sticks. Although tuned drums are not expected, the use of a higher line implies the expectancy of a higher pitch. Unfortunately,computer playback does not always give the sound intended.
