First and Third (trombone quartet, music score)

asncomposer

First and Third

for trombone quartet

Adam Scott Neal

2016


DURATION: 6 minutes

PROGRAM NOTE:

While writing this piece, I remember being surprised, amused, and annoyed with one of my

fellow trombonists in middle-school band – he who referred to pitches only by their slide position

numbers. This obviously affected his playing-- all too often a D emerged from his bell when the

music displayed a G. After all, to him they were both “fourth.” This piece uses pitches primarily

found in first and third positions, though there is a good bit of second and fourth as well (and any

alternate positions are up to the players). The title is also a baseball reference.

PERFORMANCE NOTE:

The parts begin on page 2 to facilitate page turns (hopefully, just once, between pages 3 and 4).

Score engraved by the composer in Lilypond.
