Product Information

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.
