Vier ernste Gesange, Op. 121 (Four Serious Songs) by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) displays a breathtaking motivic concentration and subtlety. To take just one example, the desolate falling thirds that open the third song are transformed by inversion into assuaging rising sixths at death's final welcoming 'O Tod, wie wohl tust du:' one fundamental idea contemplated from two diametrically opposed standpoints. Concerto written in 1961 by Robert A. Spillman (1948-) was composed while on faculty at the Eastman school in Rochester, New York. Robert Spillman's Concerto is a standard in the repetoire of the bass trombone. With an American style, its open intervals and widely spaced chords follow in the traditions of Aaron Copland and Howard Hanson. Currently teaching in Colorado, Mr. Spillman is an accomplished accompanist as well as a composer. Drei Leichte Stucke, Three Easy Pieces written in 1938 by Paul Hindemith (1895-1963) were likely written for Gertrude Hindemith, who was an amateur cellist. The term 'easy' applies here in that the entire piece is playable in first position on the cello. This should not lead to one assuming that these pieces are trivial, for they are musically charming, gentle, and beautiful. And, though they are not playable in first position on the trombone, they adapt very successfully, providing a light, gentle contrast to the more weighty trombone sonata. Sonata for Bass Trombone - Patrick McCarty (1928-) McCarty was educated at the Eastman school of Music and holds a doctorate (I believe) in Music Theory. This sonata follow the classic fast-slow-fast form and is indicative of the composer's love of modes, which is also characteristic of the predominant style of composition at Eastman during this time period. This sonata is also one of the most played pieces in the Bass Trombone literature and exists in piano and string orchestra versions (source: Jeffrey Reynoldsfrecording of sonata; Tom Everett's Annotated Guide to Bass Trombone Literature; compiled by Barnaby Kerekes) THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA SCHOOL OF MUSIC Old Auditorium Saturday, March 13,1999 4:00 p.m. MASTER'S CHAMBER RECITAL* JANICE JENSEN, Bass Trombone Suite fur vier Posaunen Alfred Homoff (b. 1902) I.
