Abstract

The essay: 1) Establishes that there is a tradition of employing trombone in mixed chamber works, 2) Shows that there is a large body of chamber music composed since 1978 and 2010 in which no more than one trombone is employed, 3) Discusses works composed between 1978 and 2010 and discusses performance practice issues and obstacles in order to provide a resource for trombonists in the development and presentation of these works, 4) Presents, as a list, a survey of available mixed chamber music written since 1978 that utilizes one trombone.
