Duo (Dance-Song) (1976)

trumpet and marimba
Sound Clip - complete. This recording is an "oldie but a goodie", from 3/2/87 at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Performance by Gordon Stout and Robert Levy - The Wilder Duo. It's not perfect, but it has great feel to it, and will give you a very good idea of how the piece goes. Check out the great jazz licks by Levy!!!!!


1976. Written for Robert Levy and Gordon Stout (The Wilder Duo). This work was commissioned by The Society for Commissioning New Music. It is an exciting and virtuosic work for these two instruments, and one of my favorite compositions. Many of the ideas for this piece came from experimenting with rhythmic games that Bob Becker created in two of his early compositions, "Clave Pairings" and "Marimba Pairings".
