Trombone Soloist Artist Recordings/CDs

  • Return of the Alto, The

    Over 75 minutes of solo and ensemble works for the alto trombone, including the world premiere recording of works by Eric Ewazen and Norman Bolter composed especially for this CD. The alto trombone is accompanied by piano, organ, string quartet, and windensemble as well as leading a mixed quartet of trombones. The opportunity to experience the beauty, strength, range and flexibility of the instrument is exploited throughout this diverse journey. It is hoped this recording will help spread respect for this past neglected instrument and encourage others to contribute to its "Return." With Eric Ewazen, Vytas Baksys, piano; Peter Skyes, organ; and the Harvard University Wind Ensemble, Thomas G. Everett, conductor includes EWAZEN Palmetto Suite; MEYER Sonata in Cm on Themes of G.B. Pergolesi; HORNOFF Suite for Four Trombones; BOLTER Sky Dreams; SAGLIETTI Suite for Alto Trombone and String Quartet; L. MOZART Concerto from Serenede in D-major; CHARPENTIER Prelude from Te Deum
