Biography

GORDON STOUT (b.1952) is currently Professor of Percussion at the School of Music, Ithaca College, Ithaca, N.Y., where he has taught percussion since 1980. A composer as well as percussionist who specializes on marimba, he has studied composition with Joseph Schwantner, Samuel Adler and Warren Benson, and percussion with James Salmon and John Beck.

As a composer-recitalist he has premiered a number of his original compositions and works by other contemporary composers. Many of his compositions for marimba are published, and have already become standard repertoire for marimbists world-wide.

His recordings are devoted not only to his own music, but also that of the general standard repertoire by important American composers. See the Discography section for detailed information.

A frequent lecture-recitalist for the Percussive Arts Society, he has appeared at twelve International PAS Conventions to date, as featured marimbist, as well as throughout the United States and Canada, Europe, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Hungary and Mexico. In May of 1983 he performed clinics and recitals in France, Germany, Holland and Belgium with “transcendental virtuosity”, being described as “the Rubinstein of all aspects of the marimba”.
