AL CIRCO: FOR TROMBONE AND HARP
David Stout's Al Circo (To The Circus) is believed to be the oldest original solo for trombone and harp, composed in 1968 while he was a student at the Eastman School of Music. This work was premiered by Trombonist Fred Boyd, and is dedicated to Emory Remington. After rediscovering this work during his research, Louis received permission from the composer to update the original manuscript to make it more readily available to the music community.
This 7’ work is in two movements, both in a lighter nature and humorous. Mute colors are an important part of the mood of the work. It is appropriate for advanced performers.
The JOLO duo will be performing Al Circo at the American Trombone Workshop in March 2019.
This solo is now available for purchase at CherryClassics.
