Cherry Classics Music and Jeff Reynolds are thrilled to introduce for the first time in print an excellent work for unaccompanied Bass Trombone from the 1960's by the late American composer Gregory Kosteck.

Here is what Jeff Reynolds says about the Kosteck - Concert Music for Bass Trombone - unaccompanied:

"When I was a student, my teacher, Roger Bobo handed me the 1963 Kosteck manuscript (originally written for tuba when they both lived in Amsterdam) to have a look for my senior recital. He said it was not right for him but I might find it worthy. Worthy it was, and I went on to play it on my recital and also as the solo piece for my audition for the bass trombone chair with the L.A. Philharmonic. After playing it on the audition, conductor Zubin Mehta asked, "Did you miss any notes?" My response was, "No".  Some years later I recorded the piece on an album called "The Big Trombone" for Crystal Records." Also available on iTunes.

The music of about 5 1/2 minutes in length is contemporary sounding in four sections: Lyrical - Scherzando - Cadenza - Lyrical and is appropriate for advanced performers.

The range goes from a pedal F up to a high G above middle C.

The beautiful performance on the audio sample is taken from Jeff Reynold's album "The Big Trombone" from Crystal Records.

This music is available as an eBook on Apple iTunes and Amazon Kindle.
