Trombone Concerto and
Solo Works are Terrific

There sure are some amazing trombone concertos and solos to be admired. For example, Rimsky-Korsakov wrote a wonderful concerto for trombone. Incidentally, trombone means large trumpet. Here are some other interesting facts about this versatile instrument.

The trombone came into existence in the middle part of the fifteenth century. By the seventeenth century, the slide trombone was being produced in three different sizes. Nowadays, treble, alto, tenor, bass, tenor-bass and double-bass (contrabass) trombones are all different members of this instrument’s family.

The great classical composer Beethoven began using the trombone in his famous fifth symphony (1808) and consistently scored for it regularly thereafter. As for great trombone performers, some past and present virtuosos include Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and Christian Lindberg.
