Low Horn Suite no. 2

Low Horn Suite no.2 for Trombone and Piano 

 

(ca. 6'45’')

Range: F-a

 

This piece was thought to be played on the B flat side of the Horn. This characteristic allows this piece to be idiomatically played on a Trombone or on an Euphonium.

 

The first movement “Till Eulenspiegel is back!” is inspired by an historical character that according to the european legend is related with many pranks. So it is very funny music based on jumps. There is a central section with a satirical character, exploring the cantabile qualities of the medium-low range.

 

Next, “Sunset” it is based on a calm melody, including several expressive range shifts.

 

 

Finally, “Dance” as suggested, it is a dance alternating 7/8 and 9/8 time signatures. A joyful rhythmic chalenge for both players!
