Raum - Romance for Solo Instrument with Piano Accompaniment
"Romance for Solo Instruments" by Elizabeth Raum was originally commissioned by the Canadian Music Competition as a test piece for French Horn and now available for a number of instruments. The work is lush and with rich harmonies and under six minutes in length. It can be performed by moderately advanced performers.
Kurt Kellan, past principal Horn with the Calgary Philharmonic, had often asked Elizabeth Raum to orchestrate this piece, so when the occasion arose for a new piece for the 2001 Prairie Festival of New Music, she decided to adapt the piece for Trombone and orchestrate it. The orchestration for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Trumpet in B-flat, Bassoon, and Strings works with Solo Horn, Trombone, Bassoon, Viola, or Cello.
