"Andrew Beall's percussion concerto is a piece with great passion. It received a standing ovation from the audience"
- Global Times
“I highly recommend Andrew Bealls “Song of Almah”, for five-octave marimba and soprano. It is a beautiful song suite in three movements, set in a tonal style. While it is best suited for the mature marimbist, musically it is immenently playable, being extremely well-written for the marimbist and using four mallets throughout. The music is lyrically concieved, and the text is from the Song of Solomon in the Old Testament. The Song is strong, and a contains depth of honest and sincere emotion, musically.”
