For violin and marimba. Written for Marimolin (violinist Sharan Leventhal and marimba player Nancy Zeltsman). The title came first, a nice alliteration - "fabled" as in the dictionary definition "mythical, legendary, having no real existence." I imagined Marimolin, in their originality of design, their enterprise, their resourceful musicianship, as having a kinship with street musicians. My piece would be at home in both the subway station and the concert hall. I also conceived it as suitable, in its modest technical demands, for a more junior Marimba-style duo, who would transpose up the passages designed for Nancy Zeltsman's marimba gigantica. — John Harbison
