Learning this piece is good for your hands as it requires a lot of interesting technical aspects, although most of the piece is pretty uninteresting to learn. You don't notice it as a listener, as many performances of it blaze through these sections, but you won't be spending as much time as you like on the very cool introduction.
I love this piece, all the marimbanist should try play it if you are at this level. I am using this music for auditions at conservatories.
In the introduction of the piece, Zivkovic calls for a very unusual marimba technique that produces sounds that remind us of a Franz Liszt grand piano sound. The middle part, however, uses typical marimbistic patterns, masterly composed in a number of various odd meters with melody in the octaves played by the right hand. The varied repetition of the opening part leads for a moment in a major keys, but after that short "light of hope" the music goes back to the melancholic mood and ends tranquillo, morendo Hailed by the critics as one of the most unique and expressive artists in the field today, a composing virtuoso Zivkovic is recognized as one of the worlds top marimba and percussion soloists.
He embodies a very rare tradition: the tradition the composer and virtuoso in one person, which was common in the 19th century among famous concert artists. Zivkovic completed his master's degrees in composition, music theory and percussion in Mannheim and Stuttgart, Germany. Videos and Sound Clips.

Nebojsa Jovan Zivkovic: Ilijaš
Nebojsa Jovan Zivkovic pronounced Neboysha Yovan Zhivkovich is one of the leading percussionists of Europe, particularly for his brilliant performances on marimba. He is also an accomplished composer who has focused primarily on compositions for his own use and that of other percussion soloists. Ilijas ee-lee-jahs is a small town in Bosnia part of the former Yugoslav Republic. The name is used to make reference to the folk music found in this area. Zivkovic apparently did not use any folk material in the music, but does make use of the unusual scales and rhythms found there. In form, this work, which is for solo marimba, is a three-part rhapsody. Breaking with Liszt 's pattern for a folk-inspired rhapsody, Zivkovic returns after the fast second portion to the original material and mood of the slow opening section, developing it further.
