In the beginning of the 20th century, American trombonists seek a repertoire and new compositions, in order to give prominence to their instrument. “Paganini of the trombone” was the denomination given to Arthur Pryor, who evolved the technique of the instrument in such a level that he’s considered a milestone for brass instruments worldwide. This concert will enrich you with images, sensations, even surprises from that significant era, since the pieces we have chosen are composed by trombonists for… trombonists!
