Program Notes

When writing of his concerti for clarinet, oboe and trombone, Rimsky-Korsakov states, "These compositions of mine were written primarily to provide the concerts with solo pieces of less hackneyed nature than the usual; secondly, that I myself might master the virtuoso style, so unfamiliar to me, with its solo and tutti, its cadences, etc. The finale of the trombone concerto was not bad taken all in all, and was effectively orchestrated. "

The trombone concerto was performed for the first time on 16 March 1878.
