Crescent City Postcards (2013)
Instrumentation: Trombone quintet (four trombones and one bass trombone)
Commissioned by: Tromboteam!
- Lake Pontchartrain Waltzes
- All Last Night Sat On the Levee and Moaned
Program Note: Crescent City Postcards for trombone quintet was commissioned by and dedicated to Tromboteam! and I am honored to have collaborated with that ensemble. Each of the three short movements of Crescent City Postcards is a meditation on some aspect of the city of New Orleans, an area I lived near for seven years.
