Product details

When asked to write a piece for trombone, organ and teenage boys, I was immediately struck by how distant the cultural resonances of the two instruments are from today's typical adolescent experience. Young people, religious or otherwise, rarely come across traditional liturgy featuring a pipe organ, while the trombone is likely associated with 'adult' idioms involving some kind of jazz fusion. And of course, they are both acoustic oddities in a world of teen-orientated digital sound.

On the other hand, the musical preferences of well-off adolescent males - as much as that can be generalised - don't exactly stem from their own reality either. Neither the ghetto fantasy of contemporary hip-hop nor the ecstatic nihilism of London-club dubstep really reflect the reliable comforts of home and school. At best, they speak to the hormonally fuelled aspirations of biology, which are almost always redirected with age into more socially acceptable ambitions.
