Daughtrey-Concerto for Vibraphone & Wind Ens. (SP)-V/Wind Ens. OS - Product Information
Concerto for Vibraphone and Wind Ensemble by Nathan Daughtrey. Commissioned by Dr. Lisa Rogers (percussion professor at Texas Tech University). This piece was premiered in its entirety at the International Society for Music Education (ISME) Conference in Beijing, China in August 2010 by the Texas Tech University Percussion Ensemble, directed by Allan Shin, with Dr. Lisa Rogers as the vibraphone soloist.
Of this piece, Daughtrey writes, "One of my favorite sources of inspiration for my compositions is poetry – especially that of Pablo Neruda. It's so passionate and filled with vivid imagery that it's just a blast to try and portray his words with music. I knew from the outset that Lisa Rogers wanted a 2-movement concerto, so I decided to try and find two poems with opposing themes and stumbled upon Neruda's collection "Ode to Opposites." I chose "Ode to Nighttime" and "Ode to Enchanted Light" which pit night against day."
