Description

Two Days by Bobby Lopez uses a melodic theme as the common thread through various forms of ostinato patterns. Four-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.

Instrumentation

  • Crotales
  • Vibraphone
  • 5 concert toms
  • Cymbals (China cymbal, splash cymbal, suspended cymbal)
  • Accessories (temple blocks, sizzle strip, wind chimes)

Shared Recordings

Performed live by Andrew Anderson.

Reviews

Review of "Two Days"  from Percussive Notes magazine,

a publication of the Percussive Arts Society (PAS)
Vol. 38, No. 4, August 2000

This solo, awarded first place at the 1998 DCI Individual and Ensemble Competition, is written for a multipercussionist playing a setup featuring an assortment of metallic timbres produced by vibes, crotales, pitched wind chimes, cymbals (chimes, sizzle, crash, and splash) and a sizzle strip, plus temple blocks and five concert tom-toms. Challenges, such as maintaining an incessant ostinato pattern on the five toms with one hand while playing a melody using a contingent of metallophones with the other, makes this solo an ideal vehicle for developing the technique of the college multipercussionist.
