Extracted from the first movement this trombone solo has been built up from three separate passages spaced throughout the movement, together forming one of the finest pieces of trombone writing in the entire symphonic repertoire.
Arranged for trombone with piano reduction. Treble and Bass Clef parts included.
This work is a (necessarily) abridged version of the trombone features from the first movement of Mahlers 3rd.
This version makes no excessive demands on the performer, placing the emphasis on quality of tone and control over technical demands.
As such it is often recommended as a first major solo piece for ABRSM grade 6 - 7 players. Anonymous
