Program Notes

The Concerto for Bass Trombone by Eric Ewazen was originally a tuba sonata and was later edited and orchestrated by the composer at the request of Warren Deck, principal tubist of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. The piece received its first performance as a concerto by bass trombonist Stefan Sanders and the Julliard Symphony Orchestra. This concerto is comprised of three movements, which is typical of instrumental concerti.
