Programme Note

Tones produced on the trombone remind us of our breathing, always building on ancient, well-tried principles.
And we composers take pleasure in the tones that arise through simple changes in the air pressure.
So the composer has a considerable stock of Pythagorean progressions at his disposal.
This in turn creates concertante situations in the course of playing, where much resembles things one has never heard before.
Sound and memory. .
