VaughanWilliams - Six Studies in English Folksong for Trombone or Euphonium and Piano
Vaughan Williams, Six Studies in English Folksong for Trombone or Euphonium and Piano was composed in 1926 for the Cellist, Meg Mukle. They have been arranged for Trombone and Piano by Ralph Sauer, retired Principal Trombonist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Although titled "Studies", these movements are very beautiful gems, each one shining with genius, able to stand on their own.
They are all in the modal lyrical style of the composer, whose music is impressionist yet British to the core. The final movement, an Allegro Vivace, evokes the memory of his English Folk Song Suite for Band.
