"Legacy" derives its title from the word referring to anything which is passed down from generation to generation.  It was commissioned by the Univsity of Wisconsin, River Falls to celebrate its 125th anniversary and salutes through musical imagery the spirit of the proud, sensitive and courageous people who have, through the years, made this historic event possible.  This piece is a concerto featuring three percussionists cast in one large, two-section movement.  An alternative form of "Legacy" for percussion octet is also available from the publisher and is entirely compatible with the version for three solo percussionionists, so it is possible that the piece could be performed with a larger percussion section of eight player if so desiered.
