Stout-Four Episodes for Solo Marimba-M - Product Information

Great piece

Comments:

Gordon Stout's "Four Episodes for Marimba: Volume 1" is quite the piece. Technically challenging, it provides a great undertaking to the college performer. It is also tonal AND atonal, which provides the audience with interesting and satisfying music.
