I wrote Trombone Quartet while I as at the MacDowell Artists Colony in New Hampshire in April of 1972. It is something of a showpiece for trombones. Its three short movements display the trombone is a variety of ways.
The first movement, "Intrada," contrasts the aggressive capabilities of the instrument with a more piquant mood. The short "Chorale" is broad and harmonically rich, while the last movement, "Scherzo," uses a combination of muted and open sounds in a technical tour de force.
The work is dedicated to Brian Bowman who encouraged me in its composition.
