Program Notes

Dedicated to Lt. Col. Samuel Laboda, Sgt. Major David Maser, and the United States Army Band for commissioning this work when I was 'Composer in Residence' for the United States Army Band, January 1967 through October of 1969.

- Program Note by composer

William Goldstein's Colloquy for Trombone and Symphonic Band was commissioned by The United States Army Band and premièred before 12,000 people at an outdoor concert in Washington D.C. at the Watergate the summer of 1967. The New York première took place that winter at Carnegie Hall. Colloquy is a favorite of the trombone soloists of the Boston Symphony and New York Philharmonic. Since 1992 when Colloquy for Solo Trombone and Symphony Orchestra premièred, Colloquy has become repertoire. It has been performed worldwide in both orchestral and symphonic band versions by both jazz and symphonic players. Joe Alessi, soloist of the New York Philharmonic, recently recorded Colloquy, as did Ron Barron, soloist of the Boston Symphony, a few years earlier. Yet another version of Colloquy was commissioned in April 2009 by the American Wind Symphony Orchestra.
