Program Notes

Joseph Turrin wrote this work featuring a trombone trio for the West Point Bicentennial. A quadrille is basically an 18th century dance form of French origin. Composer Turrin remarks,

The aspect of this form that caught my attention was that the time or meter alternates between 3/8, 6/8 and 2/4. I took this basic premise and developed these elements to my liking. The work is in three sections with a coda. The trombones work mostly as a unit and engage the band in a kind of dialogue throughout. In a sense there is a musical dance here between the trombone trio and the band.”

- Program Note from Heritage Encyclopedia of Band Music

Commissioned by the U.S. Military Band at West Point, LTC Deitrick, conductor, in honor of the 200th anniversary of the United States Military Academy, Quadrille is a major piece of music boasting colorful textures, spectacular musical lines, and a delightful dialogue between the band and the solo trombone trio.
