21st Century (2016). Romance for Solo Trombone and Orchestra by Elizabeth Raum was originally commissioned by the Canadian Music Competition as a test piece. The work is lush and with rich harmonies, about 5-1/2 minutes in length and can be performed by moderately advanced performers. Kurt Kellan, past principal hornist with the Calgary Philharmonic, had often asked Ms. Raum to orchestrate this piece, so when the occasion arose for a new piece for the 2001 Prairie Festival of New Music, she decided to adapt the piece for solo trombone and orchestra. Instrumentation is solo trombone, 1 flute, 1 oboe, 1 clarinet, 1 bassoon and 22222 strings.
