Program Notes

What a privilege it was to write a trombone concerto for the great Joe Alessi. My friend and colleague Edward Cumming conducted the two premiere performances with Joe and the Hartford Symphony. Another friend and colleague, Glen Adsit, asked for a wind ensemble version which was promptly recorded by Joe and the Hartt Wind Ensemble.

I am (or was, at least) a trombone player, so Passaggi (Italian for passages) is autobiographical in a way. Each of the three movements represents a different stage in the life of a musician and is dedicated to a different trombonist in my life. The three dedicatees are Daniel Livesay (both Joe's and my trombone teacher), Leslie Bassett (my composition teacher), and Joseph Alessi (the man!).
