Program Notes

It is interesting to recall that Henry Fillmore (1881-1956), in addition to being a legendary composer, music educator, conductor, was a fine professional trombonist who got his start playing in circus bands. We hear his affinity for the trombone in his famous trombone smears known primarily through Lassus Trombone March. However, Henry Fillmore wrote many other trombone features (actually fifteen) that also took advantage of the glissandi effect. Teddy Trombone, written in 1911, is an excellent example of this technique.
