to Trombone Solo Index
These five settings of texts by Friedrich
Rückert are some of Mahler's most intimate and heartfelt
works. For the trombonist they offer the opportunity to explore
the softly expressive side of the instrument, an aspect sometimes
missing from the typical trombone recital.
Included in the set are:
Ich atmet' einen linden Duft
Liebst du um Schönheit
Blicke mir nicht in die Lieder
Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen
