The Trombone Concerto was written in 1976 for Ian Hankey. It was a set work for the 1988 International Trombone Competition held in Brisbane, and was won by Warwick Tyrrell who subsequently recorded it for the ABC Classics label with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra in 1990. The five movements alternate fast and slow tempos, calling on the trombone's agility as well as breadth of line. The orchestration often presents an opaque texture, a mosaic of sound allowing the trombone to stand out in relief, and provide the central thread tying the music together.
Instrumentation: Solo trombone, piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets in B flat, bass clarinet in B flat, 2 bassoons, contra-bassoon, 4 horns in F, 3 trumpets in B flat, 3 trombones, timpani, percussion, celesta, strings.
