David Johnstone – SONATA BREVE – Información en inglés:
The trombone is an instrument that Johnstone had barely taken much notice of, and inspired by the Spanish trombonist Santiago Blanco he has produced this solo work in 2017. It is barely 6 minutes in length, but is intense in virtually every bar of the entire work. It is conceived in a modern style set in traditional musical notation.
There are two movements: first an ‘Exposition’ which gradually sets out the entire register of the instrumnent in declamatory phrases, followed by a ‘Tocatta’ which is rather virtuosic in nature, sometimes implying two and even three lines simultaneously, and almost verges on a ‘moto perpetuo’. It is a difficult work for advanced trombonists but one which may give ample satisfaction inpublic performance!
This musical creative project was originally written for and dedicated to: Santiago Blanco
