Another Trombone Recital! 3/15/10
March 21, 2010
My dear friend, Andy Malloy, had a faculty recital at California State University-Northridge, and I was his pianist to play with. We have played together for several years, and recorded his first CD including new pieces which he commissioned. The new commissioned work on this recital was Steven Williams’s Three Poems. This is a great work we loved! Andy recites a poem before each movement, and the poem was accompanied by piano. The music and the poem go together so well, and it is very strong and effective. Congratulations, Steve! Since it was close to St. Patrick’s Day we played Nick Lane’s Hoi Polloi (2006) again. I love this work too, and I admire Nick deeply.
