Trombone and Piano’ was commissioned by Canadian trombonist Dale Sorensen in 2011. I was immediately interested in the idea of blending the sounds of the two instruments which often sound quite disparate in traditional arrangements, so I chose to restrict the piano writing to the same range as the trombone for the entire piece. The loud turbulence of the piano at the

beginning becomes a kind of rondo-theme bookmark throughout, and provides momentous foundation that the trombone line rides through and above. A contrasting texture is when the instruments transform into rhythmic and melodic unison, and drive forward as one.
