More about this title

Excerpt Suite - Solo Bass Trombone

Here are three movements, a set of pieces firmly based on 7 well-known bass trombone orchestral excerpts.

The idea was to create pieces that were fun to play, of course, but also educational in that they might increase familiarity and appreciation of the original excerpts. I’ve explored and exploited the material of the excerpts, but without ever detracting from them; at times it’s almost like playing the excerpts inside out.

So the three movements are 1. ‘Seven Days’, based on the excerpts from Mahler’s 7th symphony, and the famous bass line within the Haydn Creation; 2. ‘Chorale, Pageant and Hop’, based around Schumann 3 and the intro to Bartok’s The Miraculous Mandarin, and 3. ‘The Cosmic Choir’, in which the featured excerpts are a sort of melange of Beethoven’s Choral symphony, the low tune in the Janacek Sinfonietta, and the theme, in octaves with tuba, towards the end of Jupiter, in Holst’s The Planets.

The movements run at approximately six minutes, then three, then four, so with breaks it’s roughly a 14-minute suite, though of course the movements sit quite happily on their own as solo pieces.
