Bass Trombone & Wind Ensemble - Advanced
Composed by Elizabeth Raum. Contemporary. Score, solo & parts. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2399).
A brilliant new Concerto in 3 movements for Bass Trombone with Wind Ensemble by leading Canadian composer Elizabeth Raum. Elizabeth has delivered several new compositions for low brass over the past several years. First for Tuba, followed by Euphonium and now Bass Trombone.
The 1st movement is bold & expressive. The 2nd movement, titled, "Romance for Nada" is lyrical followed by the 3rd and final movement which is rhythmic & dramatic.
This Concerto was commissioned by colleagues and friends in honor of Douglas Sparkes. Mr. Sparkes is Bass Trombonist of the Vancouver Symphony.
This work is suitable for advanced performers & is about 12 minutes in length.
Ms. Raum's concerto has become a major new addition to the Bass Trombone repertoire.
