Gustav Mahler: Songs of a Wayfarer
for Trombone

Back to Solo Index

This song cycle concerning the many emotions surrounding unrequited love makes a beautiful addition to a trombone recital. The wide range of expression in the four songs creates a real challenge to the player's musicianship, while also providing a chance to display the rich singing sound of the instrument.

Includes: Piano Score, (with German lyrics) Trombone part, and accompaniment CD. Also included are English paraphrases of the lyrics, and a glossary of all the German expression marks in the score.

Performance Time:    Approximately 15 minutes

"This is an excellent transcription...a solid addition to the repertoire, a model for how trombone arrangements should be published"
