Includes score only (2 scores are provided)
Duration: 8 minutes

Edward Troupin (1925-2004) enjoyed an international reputation as a composer of instrumental music. Throughout his long and illustrious career as a professor of music at Ithaca College and later the University of Florida, he inspired numerous young composers. Mr. Troupin received his bachelor’s degree from Harvard University with a major in mathematics. Later he earned his master of music degree from the University of Michigan, where he studied with Ross Lee Finney. Troupin’s sound-world is dramatic and full of vitality.

This entertaining duo is cast in five short and entertaining movements:
Assertion
Reflection
Eulogy
Fantasy
Comedy

The colorful and contrasting sections combine in charming balance to make a memorable concert feature.
