It's hard to imagine what could be left to write about J. S. Bach's ARIOSO, one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written.
We present it here for solo trombone, pitched just a little bit high for mid-range players, but ideal for someone who loves to play those high notes. The piano accompaniment is quite simple and intended to frame the solo line, not overshadow it.
For Kevin Brown, a promising young trombonist for whom I have great respect.
This piece could work for euphonium, bassoon, or cello as well.
ARIOSO by J. S. Bach, arranged by Tom Kirkland for solo trombone and piano, comes in a pdf file of 250K, with a two-page solo part, three-page piano part with solo line, and a license page, six pages in all. Performance time should be about three minutes.
