Scott Anderson will perform a recital of trombone music drawing on the strength of works by composers who were not disposed to write for the instrument. There are two original pieces on the program, the Homage a Bach by Eugene Bozza and the Suite for Trombone by Pierre Max Dubois, but the remainder of the recital will draw on works by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Antonio Vivaldi and Michael Haydn. Both the Vaughan Williams and the Vivaldi were written with other instruments in mind but are beautiful showcase works for the trombone as well. The Concertino by Michael Haydn is the wild card on the program. It is a duo featuring horn and alto trombone.

It is part of a larger Divertimento written by Haydn and there is some debate as to whether the alto trombone part is an original idea or was merely appropriated by trombonists. Come to the recital and we will try to convince you! Anderson will be joined as he always is by pianist and collaborator Michael Cotton. Alan Mattingly will join the two on the performance of the Haydn.

Scott Anderson is Hixson-Lied Professor of Trombone in the Glenn Korff School of Music at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
