Bayo's way by Jeremy Arden. For Tuba and wind orchestra. Full score. 29 pages. Duration 14 minutes. Published by Edition HH Music Publishers (HH.HH139-FSC). Bayo's way is really a miniature tuba concerto in one movement. I wanted the soloist to be the provider of pulse, a protagonist, a melodist and a magician. With this in mind, I set out to use the entire vocabulary of the instrument as well as some very unusual electronic extensions.

Tchal-Kouyrouk et la septeme by Nicolas Gilbert. For Orchestra (2,2,2,2-4,3,3,Tuba-Percussion-piano-12,10,8,6,4). Full score. 36 pages. Duration 9 minutes. Published by Edition HH Music Publishers (HH.HH094-FSC). Tchal-Kouyrouk, the trusty steed of Toshtuk, Giant of the Steppes, is going to recover his master's soul, which has been stolen, then bring Toshtuk back to his wife Kenjeke, who is pregnant with his child. In those far-off days when Toshtuk, Kenjeke and Tchal-Kouyrouk were living, the twelve-tone row was evidently already a historical necessity. The rules surrounding its worship were to be respected: never interrupt the twelve-tone row, never make irreverent remarks about it, never look at another system of pitch-organization, apply the model of the twelve- tone row to everything in the world to which it might be applicable.

Concerto No. 2 for Marimba and Orchestra by Gillingham. Arranged by Nathan Daughtrey. For Soloist(s) with Full Orchestra (Piccolo, Flute 1/2, Oboe 1/2, Clarinet 1/2 in Bb, Bassoon 1/2, Trumpet 1/2 in C, Trumpet 3 in C, Horn 1/3, Horn 2/4, Trombone 1/2, Trombone 3, Bass Trombone, Tuba, Solo Marimba, Piano, Timpani, Percussion 1 (Bells, Brake Drum), Percussion 2 (Vibraphone, S). Orchestra Music. Grade 5. Score only. Duration 23:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.11854). The Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra is a commission by a consortium of schools and performers headed by Professor Marc Wooldridge of Northwestern College, Orange City, Iowa.The work exploits the full range of the technical and expressive ability of the five-octave concert grand marimba. It is cast in the standard three-movement format. The first movement uses sonata-rondo form and begins with a slow introduction and quasi-cadenza by the marimba. An animated first theme follows in G-minor accompanied by clarinets and tambourine. A contrasting second theme area follows featuring chromatic mediant progressions and descending chromatic lines. The return of the first theme utilizes a slightly different accompaniment. The development section reworks all the thematic material in different guises. The recapitulation presents the first theme, verbatim, as it was in the exposition. The second theme, however, changes the mode to major. The return alternates the marimba on theme with the orchestra playing the theme in augmentation. The marimba quietly ends the movement with an ascending and descending arpeggiated passage.The second movement is a chaconne with eight variations. The marimba states a rather haunting chorale-like melody in Bb minor. The first variation features the horns and low strings on the chaconne theme with the marimba on the variation. Variation II uses marimba, oboe, and horns and Variation III uses marimba, vibraphone, and strings. Cascading muted brass against the augmented chaconne theme in the flutes and clarinets are indicative of Variation IV. Variation V changes the slow pace to fast using marimba, strings, timpani and bells. A haunting Variation VI utilizes bowed marimba on the chaconne theme accompanied by piano, bells, and vibraphone. Variation VII features the strings and low winds on the chaconne theme against triplets in the upper brass. Rolled arpeggiated chords highlight Variation VIII along with solo cello and solo violin on the second half of the variation. A somber coda brings the movement to a close.The third movement, like the first, is in sonata-rondo design and is cyclic, bringing back and combining the thematic material of the first and second movements. The first theme, in D-minor, is angular and spirited, accompanied by strings and tambourine (reminiscent of Mvt. I). The second theme brings back the second theme of the first movement followed by the return of the first theme, now accompanied by horns, strings, and tambourine. The development combines and works thematic material from all three movements of the concerto. The recapitulation begins with the cellos on the first theme, followed by the horns and trumpets and finally, the marimba. The second theme brings back the chaconne of the second movement, this time in major with the marimba accompanying using rhythmic material taken from the first theme of the third movement. There is no formal return of the first theme. Instead, the marimba plays a cadenza in which the first theme material and the 2nd movement chaconne are developed. A galloping presto (coda) follows bringing the movement to a close in D major.- David R. GillinghamPRAISE FOR THE CONCERTO"The new Concerto for Marimba by David Gillingham is an intriguing, engaging, and challenging piece. I had so much fun playing it and I am planning to perform it everywhere!! It is a "must-try" for all marimbists!"She-e Wuworld-renowned solo marimba artist.

Concerto for Percussion Solo & Orchestra by Ziek. Arranged by Nathan Daughtrey. For Soloist(s) with Full Orchestra (Piccolo, Flute 1/2, Oboe 1/2, English Horn, E-flat Clarinet, Clarinet 1/2, Bassoon 1/2, Trumpet 1 in C, Trumpet 2/3 in C, Horn 1/3, Horn 2/4, Trombone 1, Trombone 2/3, Tuba, Solo Percussion, Timpani, Percussion 1 (tam tam, wind chimes, temple blocks, wind). Grade 5. Score only. Duration 14:20. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.05385). Concerto for Percussion Solo was composed in January of 2001 as a showcase for the talents of percussionist Scott Herring. The concerto is in three connected movements and features the soloist on a variety of instruments, including marimba, vibraphone, bells, and crotales. A large percussion battery with two snare drums, multiple toms, brake drums, and bass drum is also used. The first movement, March, utilizes a quasi five-part rondo form. The movement starts with a solo snare drum, with the ensemble providing melodic interjections. The introduction builds to the first solo marimba entrance. A left hand ostinato leads to a melodic figure which alternates between six-eight and common time. A short snare drum solo sets up the middle section, in which the soloist and ensemble trade musical ideas. The multi-meter passage returns, with the soloist embellishing ensemble melodic figures. An abrupt modulation leads to the final section, which echoes the opening ideas of the movement. March ends with the soloist back on the snare drum, as it comes quietly to its conclusion. The concerto immediately segues into the second movement, Meditation, which begins with the ethereal sound of multiple sets of wind chimes. As the movement progresses, the soloist plays long, reflective lines over a simple accompaniment, on various combinations of keyboard percussion instruments. The movement builds to a moment of triumph, before returning to its initial contemplative state. Fantasia (a free flight of fantasy) immediately shatters the previous mood. A loud, cacophonous accompaniment provides a charged atmosphere for the soloist to utilize the percussion battery. A short melodic section, noble in character, leads to the initial climax of the final movement. The atmosphere abruptly changes again, as the ensemble and soloist embark upon a fast, violent new section. Musical lines are furiously exchanged, leading up to a thunderous percussive display. The mood is suddenly tinged with blues and jazz influences, letting the soloist function in a manner reminiscent of a drum set player. The final section of Fantasia begins with a unaccompanied marimba solo, played at breakneck speed. The ensemble begins to gradually join the soloist, as the movement builds to a final, fortissimo climax.

Concertino for 4 Percussion & Orchestra by Gillingham. Arranged by Nathan Daughtrey. For Soloist(s) with Full Orchestra (Piccolo, Flute 1/2, Oboe 1/2, Clarinet 1/2 in Bb, Bassoon 1/2, Trumpet 1/2 in C, Trumpet 3 in C, Horn 1/3, Horn 2/4, Trombone 1/2, Trombone 3, Bass Trombone, Tuba, Harp, Solo Percussion 1 (timpani, bells, crash cymbal, suspended cymbal, bass drums, tam-ta). Grade 5. Score only. Duration 9:30. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.02875). The original conception of this work, "Concertino for Four Percussion and Wind Ensemble," was commissioned by the Oklahoma State University Wind Ensemble, Joseph Missal, conductor and Wayne Bovenschen, Professor of Percussion studies.The Concertino or "small concerto" seeks to exploit keyboard, membrane, and auxiliary percussion instruments with the marimbas, xylophone, timpani, vibraphone, and bass drums as the featured instruments, assisted by crash cymbals, suspended cymbal, tam-tam, bells, chimes, triangle, and hi-hat to enhance both the ensemble and the solo instruments.Two thematic motives are used as a point of departure for this work. Both appear in the slow and mysterious introduction. The first, played by the marimbas, is dramatic and the second is haunting and played by the vibraphone and bells. The following Allegro is structured similar to a rondo with recurrences of both themes interspersed by episodic sections. The first theme, however, is transformed into a very lively arpeggiated tune played by the xylophone and marimba. The coda is marked by a relentless rhythmic competition of two sets of bass drums which accompany the primary thematic material as first heard in the slow introduction. The work draws to a resounding conclusion when the second haunting theme is stated dramatically in tour de force by the brass.Concertino for Four Percussion is also available for performance with Wind Ensemble (Item #02870) and Piano (Item #02872).

Redemption of a Fallen Angel by David Gillingham. For Full Orchestra (Piccolo, Flute 1,2, Oboe 1,2, Bb Clarinet 1,2, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon 1,2, Bb Trumpet 1, 2, 3, F Horn 1, 2, 3, 4, Trombone 1, 2, Bass Trombone, Tuba, Piano, Timpani, Percussion 1 (bells, xylophone, suspended cymbal, tam-tam), Percussion 2 (hi-hat, snare d). Orchestra Music. Score only. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.13091). Redemption of a Fallen Angel was commissioned by the Metropolitan Youth Symphony (Detroit, Michigan) conducted by Alan MacNair.The work is cast as a tone poem in which "good" ultimately triumphs over "evil". My lifelong interest in heavenly beings and life after death peeked my imagination and has rendered a rather sinister story about a angel who has succumbed to the Devil and has decided to reek havoc on the whole world. The work opens with this so-called "fallen angel" involved in sinister and wicked mischief represented by some angular and angry melodic lines stated by horns and trumpets with the strings playing a turbulent ostinato. His destruction, however, is interrupted by a choir of angels (oboe accompanied by strings) who pray for forgiveness and redemption. But the fallen angel is not to be swayed and leaves to continue his plight upon the world. More choirs of angels are then brought in to form a circle around the wicked angel. They sing their prayers and plead to God to forgive and redeem the fallen angel. The music of this section reflects angelic singing and prayerful melodic lines. The calmness is interrupted by the angry music of the beginning as the fallen angel tries, once again, to escape. But the redeeming power of God is not to be avoided and the choir of angels enfold the fallen angel and carry him upward to the heavens. The angelic theme returns in full splendor and the work drives to a glorious conclusion.-DRG.

Orchestra Music. Score only. Duration 7:30. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.11301). The writing of "Turn the Page" was the result of my association with conductor and good friend Jung Ho Pak (New Haven Symphony and WorldYouth Symphony Orchestras). Maestro Pak and I met at The Interlochen Arts Camp where we are both faculty and we collaborate on the orchestra reading project with the student composers.Our conversations over the years have included the future of the orchestra and new orchestral music in our society. Audiences have lost a great deal of context with new music over the past 90 years, in my opinion, and new music has remained an anomaly for many listeners.So when I decided to write Jung Ho an orchestra piece, I knew it had to be music that meant something to listeners--something that would have cultural context to an audience and yet be challenging and interesting to play. And a piece that would be played more than just once.I seek a certain drama and excitement in my music. Perhaps that is why I am so attracted to composers like Mahler, Stravinky, and Daugherty. But I also have a diverse listening palate having played big band jazz as a lead trumpet player and funk as a synthesizer player.Often when I travel, especially on long driving trips, I will listen to old "art-rock" of bands such as "Yes," "Genesis," and "Led Zeppelin." One of my favorite tunes is "Heartbreaker" from the album "Led Zeppelin II." It has a very unusual guitar solo in the middle of the song--Unusual, because the band stops playing and Jimmy Page takes a motivically oriented solo, much like a cadenza in a concerto. It was the first time anything like that was ever done in that genre and was really the beginning of guitarists becoming virtuosos on their instruments. Actually, that solo had all the fire of a Tchaikovsky or Mendelssohn concerto cadenza.Hence, the idea came to be to combine the suggestion of this solo with orchestra and, later, to use an electric guitar or CD recording of the actual solo with the orchestra. It seemed to me that all the power of Led Zeppelin was certainly in good company with a full-sized symphony orchestra--Witness Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring." Could any rock band create that much excitement?-DWM.
