Allegro Barbaro for Trombone and Piano composed by Bela Bartok (1881-1945). Arranged by Ralph Sauer. For trombone and piano. Hungarian National 20th century. Advanced. Solo part and piano accompaniment. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2566).
Bartok's Allegro Barbaro, composed in 1911 is one of his most famous solo piano works, written in his typical style using folk elements based on Hungarian Pentatonic and Romanian chromatic scales. The music has even been used on a composition by the Progressive rock group "Emerson, Lake and Palmer" from their 1970 debut album.
Ralph Sauer's brilliant arrangement for Trombone and Piano is reminiscent of the famous Trombone passage from the Miraculous Mandarin ballet suite.
This 3 minute work is suitable for advanced performers.
The sound clip is performed by Mr. Sauer with Mac Booke on piano.
