BRING THE NOISE

"Bring the Noise" features compositions for percussion and euphonium commissioned by the duo between 2016-now. Ranging from fixed media electronics to theatrical works, found objects to traditional instruments, and non-keyboard to keyboard percussion only, this program highlights the very best of the new repertoire for this contemporary chamber ensemble. 

ELISION

"Elision", the process of merging things or abstract ideas, features solo and chamber works for percussion and low brass. Included in this program is a mix of commissioned and original works, as well as adaptations and arrangements of pieces outside our literature. Additionally, the program emphasizes chamber music for percussion and trombone, tuba, or euphonium. 

MADERA y METAL

Spanish for 'wood and metal', "Madera y Metal" explores the rich timbres found in marimba and euphonium literature. This program includes pieces commissioned by, premiered by, and written for the Moreau | VanTuinen Duo, as well as standard literature. With music from Japan, Switzerland, Spain, and the USA, this program is as diverse as our sound.
