I am excited to announce a new work for bass trombone and piano to be composed in 2017! This will build on my previous works for solo trombone composed for Joseph Alessi, principal trombone of the New York Philharmonic. The work will consist of four movements and hopefully demonstrate the full virtuosic capabilities of the instrument. The focus will be on the beautiful tone quality and raucous energy of bass trombone while incorporating jazz, Latin, and modern elements.
Duration - ca. 12-15 minutes
Difficulty - Accomplished undergraduate or graduate student
Cost - $100 per participant
Membership - Limited to fifteen professional and university bass trombonists
Anticipated Completion - January 2018
Performance exclusivity from January 2018 to May 2019
Bound score and bound solo part inscribed with the name and institution of each participant
Composer is willing to travel to consortium premieres based on schedule availability and funding
