Choro No. 2 (2006)

gordon stout


For marimba, cajon, and violin. Written for gordon, Dane Richeson, and Susan Waterbury.  The first of three Choros for this instrumentation (Choros 2, 3, and 4).  The marimbist needs to be able to effectively play tenths in the low register of the 5.0 marimba.  I had originally thought to write the violin part for bandoneon, but since I didn't know anyone that played that, I "settled" for violin, and the great musicianship of Susan Waterbury.  Published by Keyboard Percussion Publications (
