Product details

Duo Sonata is a unique, four-movement composition for two multiple-percussion soloists, which for its melodic material draws upon a series of Elizabethan songs (of John Dowland, Thomas Campion, William Corkine, Alfonso Ferrabosco and Robert Jones). Despite its melancholy overall mood, the second movement is bright and vigorous, while the third is a short, delicate interlude with bell-like sounds. Each movement has its own particular character, and any one movement could be performed separately. Performance demands embrace 4-mallet technique, rapid passage work and cross-rhythms. A large array of instruments is required, including: chimes, glockenspiels, vibraphone, marimba, xylophone, crotales, timpani, various drums, whip, assorted cymbals and tam-tams.
