Arthur Pryor: Solos For Trombone

Books | Trombone, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Carl Fischer
Composer: Arthur Pryor
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Arthur Pryor was one of the most popular bandsmen of his day. He was Trombone soloist for the famous John Philip Sousa band in the early part of the 20th century. Pryor later organized his own band that was renowned around the world.

He was one of the first solo performers to use phonograph recordings to preserve his performances. To this day, his recordings of his own works are considered to be some of the best Trombone performances ever recorded. Pryor's works for Trombone are melodic, idiomatic and virtuosic.

This collection preserves many of his best known compositions like Thoughts of Love and Blue Bells of Scotland, but also makes available once again some of his other delightful works.

          Trombone part edited very well
          most of the given slide positions are useful
          Some difficult page turns in the piano part
          Not really a bad point - the agogic hints are not clear enough - I would recommend to consult youtube videos for style - listen to Arthur Pryor himself, Andy Flaxman, Ian Bousfield, or get historical recordings with Isele

          Thoughts of love (ABRSM grade 8 trombone syllabus) is a beautiful piece and highly recommendable for the exam. Book is clear, with a separate book containing just the trombone part. Great book and worth the money.
