Down and Up
Pull and Push
Off and On
Pro Bono: Three Little Studies for Bass Trombone is a suite of miniatures for tenor trombone, highlighting different playing techniques. The first movement fanfare Down and Up focusses on arpeggiation of the harmonic series. The expressive second movement Pull and Push explores legato and muted lyricism (with a hint of blues). Off and On brings the suite to a close with a syncopated interlocking dance.
Pro Bono: Three Little Studies for Bass Trombone is dedicated with thanks to bass trombonist Ilan Morgenstern, and was made possible with support from the British Columbia Arts Council.
Perusal only. The score will be available for free download after the world premiere.
