The Story Behind the Project
This music on this recording was all written for or premiered by Columbus State University trombone students. Many are new works specifically commissioned for this recording project, including "La Reconquista" which was composed by a current member of the ensemble Andrew Markel. It was through the generous backing of our supporters that we were able to raise enough money to make the CD free to everyone, as we endeavor to get some wonderful music written or arranged for trombone ensemble out there!
"Full Tilt" was commissioned by the CSU Trombone Ensemble and premiered at the 2013 International Trombone Festival at Columbus State University. It is available from Art of Sound Music.
"In Their Gentle Presence" was premiered at CSU during the 2014 Southeast Trombone Symposium. It is available from the composer's website.
