Stout-Diptych for Marimba and Percussion Solo-P/V/M - Product Information

Written while studying composition with Warren Benson at Eastman. The word diptych is taken from the word triptych, which is a three paneled painting. A diptych is therefore a two movement composition. I was interested in the idea of writing a two movement composition in which the fast movement was first, followed by a slower second movement. All of my diptych compositions follow that same movement order. It is scored for marimba, vibraphone, bass drum, 2 tom toms, conga drum, and two sets of bongos. It consists of a quick moving interplay between all the instruments in the predominantly fast first movement and features the marimba as a lyrical instrument in the slow second movement.
