Concertino (for trombone)

Ferdinand David/trans. Charles T. Yeago
Dan Quinn, trombone soloist (May 9, 2010) 

 

Concertino was composed for Trombone and Orchestra by Ferdinand David (1810-1873). A virtuoso violinist and composer, David was born in the same house in Hamburg where renowned composer Felix Mendelssohn had been born the previous year. David became the first violinist of a string quartet in Dorpat and was making concert tours by the age of 19. Meanwhile Mendelssohn had promised Carl Traugott Queisser, a young trombone virtuoso, that he would write a trombone concerto for him, but never had time to do so. Ferdinand David, his good friend and by now concertmaster of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, finished what Mendelssohn had initially set out to do with the completion of this Concertino for Trombone and Orchestra. This piece has been transcribed for concert band by Charles T. Yeago.
