Details

Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) composed his String Quartet No. 1 in D, Op. 11, in 1871. Countless arrangements of its second movement, Andante Cantabile, have been made, but it was not discovered until after his death that he, too, had arranged this movement in 1888. His version being for Solo Cello and Strings. In this version, Tchaikovsky transposed the movement, originally in the key of B-flat Major, up to B Major. The singing melody is based on a popular Russian folk song, and it lends itself quite well for performance on Trombones. This arrangement premiered February 14, 1997, at the Texas Music Educators’ Association Convention in San Antonio, TX. Soloist: Ron Barron, Principal Trombone, Boston Symphony Orchestra Ensemble: Texas University Teachers’ Trombone Ensemble (TUTTE), J. Mark Thompson, conducting. Andrew Russell, program organizer and presider. It was subsequently featured on July 7, 2012, at the International Trombone Festival at the Paris Conservatory in Paris, France. Soloist: Ron Barron, Principal Trombone, Boston Symphony Orchestra (retired) Ensemble: William F. Cramer Memorial Trombone Choir, Irvin Wagner, Conducting.
