Genre: ContemporaryUnaccompanied; Stutter Step is work for unaccompanied euphonium and was commissioned by Patrick Geren. The work was influenced by the music of Argentine composer, Astor Piazzolla, who revolutionized tango music in the 20th century. Stutter Step opens with an introduction meant to be played freely and without time. It is a scene as if the two dancers are entering the room. An opportunity for the performer to demonstrate virtuosic musicality and interpretation. A meter and tempo are then given as the dance begins. Style and articulation are of the most importance in this section. Following is another freer section, however this time there is a greater sense of melody than in the introduction. The compound melody of this section works in tandem to outline harmony with a bassline accompanying the main melody. Familiar material then transitions the piece back to the dance tempo and to the coda as the work ends with a flourish. Learn More$14.95

It was my honor and my pleasure to write this piece in dedication to Vincent Di Martino (and his son Gabriel) upon Vince's 50th year in higher education. The image I had for this piece was of someone casting stones into a pool and the ripples going out, one by one, from each stone - in that sense as each of many ideas from teacher to son, to students, to the students of students, to colleagues in the US and eventually worldwide.
The piece also reflects Mr. Di Martino's legendary versatility by changing styles mid-way while still using the same thematic motive. There is even an opportunity for improvisation towards the end. May the ripples continue on and on for many years and many generations.
