Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
This work started with a few bars first explored at my Bernstein upright piano at home in Moonee Ponds on the 2nd of January 2015. In the following week, more ideas were sketched in Adelaide while I was a tutor at AYO National Music Camp. And an idea for the 2nd movement came to me while holidaying in Portland (on the way back from Adelaide). The opening of the 3rd movement was first thought and played at my mother's Kawai grand piano in Brighton. So in all, the work is something of a road trip, developed and refined on computer back in Moonee Ponds over the last week of January 2015. Written at the invitation of my colleague Don Immel (Head of Brass at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music), Sonata for Trombone and Piano is the 5th in a series of sonatas undertaken in the new millennium. The premiere performance was given by Don Immel and Konrad Olszewski in Melba Hall on 6 November 2016.
