ABRSM Trombone syllabus 2017-2020 for Grade 6
This concerto is small in scale: the first movement making much of an energetically rising arpeggio figure, a lyrical second movement with some chromatic harmony that foreshadows parts of Sheherazade and a brisk march-like finale with an extended cadenza.
In addition to the traditional cadenza this edition contains an alternative for the more advanced player.
"This new edition should broaden the appeal of this old perennial to a wider range of players. There is an alternative cadenza included... very nicely presented, includes interesting programme notes and some particularly useful performance notes." - The Trombonist
