    As you can probably tell from the title, Gnomes & Other Twilight Creatures by Dan Moore is a light-hearted and audience-friendly duet for two percussionists using keyboard/multi-percussion setups. If possible, a narrator should be used to introduce each movement - it's called drama, people!

    Each movement represents a different mythological creature, some of which are comical, some bombastic, some angry, and some excitable. The entire piece is about 10 minutes in length (with narration) and strikes an excellent balance between being challenging for the performers and being audience-friendly.

    Gnomes & Other Twilight Creatures would be an excellent choice for an undergraduate recital - and you can always double dip and play it on both players' recitals!


    • Player 1: Marimba, Toms (2), Ribbon Crasher
    • Player 2: Xylophone, Vibraphone, Bamboo Wind Chimes

    From the composer: This is a fantasy piece for two multi-percussionists. It is intended to be a fun and interesting piece for both performers and listener. Each part offers some technical challenges, but over Gnomes is a very player-friendly work. It is quite effective to have a narrator read the introduction to each movement. If a narrator is not used, be sure to print the narrations in the program to set the mood for each movement. -Dan Moore
