Sibelius, Jean – Romance in C, Opus 42 for Trombone and Piano.
This product is available for digital download only
Sibelius wrote the five-minute "Romance" in 1903 for string orchestra, originally titling it "Andante". However he was persuaded to change the name about five years later by a critic's review. In 1903, Sibelius was still composing in a Romantic style, not the austere sounds heard later-on after he composed the 4th Symphony.
Romance is made up of three sections; a slow Andante, a faster middle section and a slow third section. Mr. Sauer has distilled the music down to a lovely solo for Trombone and Piano.
This crowd-pleaser will work well for advanced performers.
