About this work:
“Trombones Rule” in this texture-based piece. No technique in the traditional sense but rhythmic activity keeps it moving. Long reflective 21-minute piece or use the relief squad (3 additional trombones) to turn it into a 42-minute piece with the second half being a mirror of the first half.
Makes a nice contrast with “Musography” on a recital program. Your complete recital program could be:
1) “Musography” (2nd squad)
2) “No Technique” (42-minute version) (1st and 2nd squads)
3) “Musography” (1st squad)
Now that’s innovative programming!
Please contact the composer for performance materials.
