Sonata [piano reduction]
The Sonata for Bass Trombone is one of the most
popular works for this instrument*, written and
first performed in 1962 at the Eastman School of
Music. It is a tonal work set in three movements,
"Allegro Non Troppo", "Andantino", and "Vivace".
The outside movements display the versatility of
the bass trombone with their use of technique and
range, while remaining melodic. The middle (slow)
movement displays the instrument's lyrical
qualities. This work has been recorded by Jeff
Reynolds, bass trombonist of the Los Angeles
Philharmonic Orchestra, on Crystal Records.
