Program Notes

A new transcription of the original orchestral score commissioned by Will Baker and the UCLA Wind Ensemble, this two-movement concerto for bass trombone is a phenomenal showcase of both soloist and ensemble. The first movement, There's a Beacon Fair, is calm and bright, with brief moments of tension, and begins and ends with a series of quiet chords that lull the listener into a place of peace and nostalgia. The second movement, There Falls a Flood of Fire, shatters this dream world, and races off on a whirlwind journey through a place of turmoil and fear, with only brief moments of respite.
