Item Details

Irish air.

Many different versions of this traditional Irish melody have been well-known to audiences throughout the world, including versions for band, orchestra, chorus, and brass ensemble. This arrangement for trombone quartet offers yet another possibility for this well-known melody. In creating this version, the arranger has attempted to freely explore the motivic potentials of the melody in terms of its harmonic and contrapuntal possibilities. The melodic line traverses throughout the parts giving each player opportunities in the spotlight, and the rich, sonorous sounds of the trombone quartet is well-suited to expressing the somber and reflective nature of the music.
