Pro Bono: Three Little Studies for Trombone Duo is a suite of miniatures for tenor and bass trombone, highlighting different playing techniques. The first movement fanfare Ups and Downs focusses on arpeggiation of the harmonic series. The expressive second movement Pushes and Pulls explores legato and muted lyricism (with a hint of blues). Ons and Offs brings the suite to a close with a syncopated interlocking dance.
Pro Bono: Three Little Studies for Trombone Duo is dedicated with thanks to trombonists Brian Wendel and 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.
