    Instrument: trombone TC/BC with piano reduction
    Grade: slightly difficult
    Catalogue No: 4111TC
    ISMN No: 9790570272723

    This concerto is small in scale; the first movement making much of an energetically rising arpeggio figure, a lyrical second movement with some chromatic harmony that foreshadows parts of Sheherazade and a brisk march-like finale with an extended cadenza.
    In addition to the traditional cadenza this edition contains an alternative for the more advanced player,
    A solo part in treble clef also is included.

    "... This new edition should broaden the appeal of this old perennial to a wider range of players. There is an alternative cadenza included,…and there is a treble clef version…very nicely presented, includes interesting programme notes and some particularly useful performance notes."

Before joining the Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2000 he was Principal Trombone in the BBC Symphony Orchestra from 1981, having previously held the same position in the Royal Philharmonic, Halle and the BBC Philharmonic. He also appears with other major British orchestras including the Academy of St Martins in the Fields, English Chamber, London Philharmonic, Philharmonia and the London Symphony. He was a member of the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble and founder member of its successor, London Brass. As a soloist he has performed concertos with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Festival Orchestra. He was previously Professor of Trombone at the Royal College of Music and the Trinity College of Music.

    As arranger for Philip Jones Brass Ensemble and London Brass, his music is published by Chesters and Brass Wind Publications. His arrangements and compositions have been recorded by artists ranging from the Berlin Philharmonic Brass to Desford Colliery Band and many young trombonists will be familiar with his music that appears in the syllabus of the ABRSM AND GSMD examination syllabus.
