McCarty, Patrick Sonata

Bass Trombone Solos w/Piano

  • McCarty, Patrick


    20th Century (1962). The Sonata for Bass Trombone is one of earliest written specifically for the bass trombone. It is also one of the most popular works for this instrument [ITA Journal, Winter 1999], 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. -cdp
