Philip Sparke: Trombone Concerto

Philip Sparke#s Trombone Concerto was commissioned by the Deutsche Bläserphilharmonie for a recording of Philip Sparke#s music in October 2006. The concerto was written for, and is dedicated to, Olaf Ott, principal trombone with the Berlin Philharmonic. The concerto is in traditional three-movement form and the whole work could be seen as a dramatic soliloquy for the soloist, who starts in earnest and agitated mood but, as the concerto progresses, is able to take a more optimistic tone until he ends the work with a #symphonic# samba.
