George Frideric Handel

for Trombone Octet

I did this transcription a number of years ago for a get together at Glenn Dodson's house. Several really fine players were planning to come, so I tried to write parts that would be challenging and fun to play for everybody there.

The result is a virtuoso tour de force that will challenge any trombone choir, and please any audience.

Suitable for advanced college or professional players.
