Ewazen's double trombone quintet was composed in memoriam for the late Glenn Dodson, and "reflects (Dodson's) lively spirit" and the "singing sounds" of his instrument. Its first performance was given by a group of former students at a memorial concert, celebrating the life of the former principal trombonist of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Ewazen points, in particular, to a fugue section in the work, fittingly based upon the Tuba Mirum from Mozart's Requiem. For advanced performers.
