Trombone Concertino (David)
Ferdinand David's Concertino for Trombone and Orchestra, Op. 4, was composed in 1837. It is well-known and one of the earliest Romantic-era solo pieces for the trombone. It was dedicated to Karl Traugott Queisser, a famous trombone and violin soloist of the time. Initially Queisser asked Felix Mendelssohn to write him a Trombone Concerto but did not have the time and suggested the then-young David for the task. The piece was premiered at the Gewandhaus with Queisser playing the solo part and Mendelssohn conducting.
It consists of 3 movements:
- I. Allegro maestoso
- II. Marcia funebre (Andante)
- III. Allegro maestoso.
The second movement was arranged for Violin and Piano by David and was played at his own funeral.
This score is written for the following instruments:
