Compositions for Orchestra

and the place was water (orchestra version)

Travis M. Ramsey

Commissioned by Adam Luker (Madison, WI)

for Adam Luker

trombone solo with orchestra

Three contrasting movements, each to be played on a different trombone: Sorrow moves in wide waves (btb.), River rising–flood (ttb.), All things move toward the light (atb.). Based on the poem Paean to Place by Lorinne Neidecker, this composition confronts the fear, sorrow, and eventually rebuilding that accompanied the June 2008 floods in the midwest. Solo writing for trombone is very difficult, including rapid scalar passages and extended ranges on all three horns. Also available with piano reduction, see item 3015.

This setting of the familiar Russian folk song begins with an authoritative trombone cadenza, then takes the theme through several variations. The conclusion brings the solo part to a high E-flat. Also available with concert band or piano accompaniment, see items 3012 and 3013.
