a collection of 27 unique original works

In the wee quiet hours of early morning, one can get mischievous. But rather than leave this time idle, some may choose to dabble in the mysteries of creation. In a spat of sleepless days, Marier found renewed energy in composing for the Orchestra, wrote many pieces of various lengths and also composed a series of 21 String Quartets.
