Program Notes

The term 'doubler' generally means one player playing two or more instruments. Each subsequent instrument is referred to as a 'double' because the number can get very high (especially for woodwind doublers). In professional, especially union, situations players get paid more for each additional double played. In this work, the same musician doubles on a different instrument in each of the three movements.

Concerto for Doubles was commissioned by the famous band leader Paul Whiteman for his saxophone/clarinet player Al Gallodoro.

- Program Note unattributed


The volume Paul Whiteman: Pioneer in American Music, 1930-1967 mentions that the work was a winning entry in a Whiteman competition, as opposed to a commission.
