Push and Pull
On and Off
Pro Bono: Three Little Studies for Tenor Trombone is a suite of miniatures for tenor trombone, highlighting different playing techniques. The first movement fanfare Up and Down focusses on arpeggiation of the harmonic series. The expressive second movement Push and Pull explores legato and muted lyricism (with a hint of blues). On and Off brings the suite to a close with a syncopated interlocking dance.
Pro Bono: Three Little Studies for Tenor Trombone is dedicated with thanks to trombonist Brian Wendel, 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.
