William Bolcom’s Trombone Concerto was premiered by the New York Philharmonic with Joseph Alessi as soloist on June 10, 2016. Since then the composer has also added a band transcription, premiered by the University of Michigan on November 21, 2017. Both versions are available on rental. The piano reduction is very playable by college-level pianists and renders this dynamic new concerto nicely suitable for recital performances as well. Movements: I. Quasi una fantasia, II. Blues, III. Charade
