Medium Concert Percussion
by Robert Lopez
Instrumentation: Crotale, Vibraphone, 5 concert toms, Cymbals (China cymbal, splash cymbal, suspended cymbal), Accessories (temple blocks, sizzle strip, wind chimes)
Two Days uses a melodic theme as the common thread through various forms of ostinato patterns. 4-mallet proficiency will be required for much of the ostinato work. A variety of techniques are used, including playing rims and blocks with the mallet shafts, and playing the wind chimes as a melodic component.
Two Days was awarded First Prize at the 1998 DCI Individual and Ensemble "Multiple Percussion" solo competition.
This piece is published as a grand staff with a saddle-stitch, professional binding.
