Dream-Awakening and Dance

Stout’s third work for marimba orchestra, featuring two marimba soloists.

Gordon Stout (b.1952) is currently Professor of Percussion at the School of Music, Ithaca College, Ithaca, N.Y., where he has taught percussion since 1980.

This is my third work for marimba orchestra, and was written for the Celebrate Musser Festival at Kutztown Univerisity, PA in November of 2015. It is a kind of concerto grosso style composition, featuring two marimba soloists with marimba orchestra. The soloists for the premiere performance were Bob Becker and Yurika Kimura. The orchestra was conducted by Gordon Stout. The orchestra are written such that there are tutti and soli sections.
