Untitled Symphonic

gordon stout - marimbist, composer, educator


During the semester break between fall 2016 and spring 2017 I finally composed my first "symphony" for orchestra!  It is yet untitled, and consists of three movements of about 26 minutes in length for full orchestra.  I hope to finish all necessary editing during the summer of 2017, after which I will generate a full score to shop around for possible a premiere performance.

It is scored for one each of piccolo, flute, oboe, english horn, e-flat clarinet, b-flat clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, contra-bassoon, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, trombone, bass trombone, tuba, percussion (timpani, percussion, chimes, bells, xylophone), celeste, piano, harp, and strings.  This is likely not for a high school orchestra, unless it is a really, really, good one (with harp and celeste).  It should be playable by a good/excellent college orchestra, and certainly by a good professional group.
