Today on MusiCB3, a quick look at some of the latest additions to the Pendlebury CD collection…
The Historical Trombone
Towards the end of the seventeenth century, the trombone repertoire began to suffer as trombones tended to be usurped by bassoons and oboes. What would the trombone repertoire have been like had more composers written for it in this period? This CD tries to answer this question, with arrangements of pieces by Albinoni, Telemann, Marcello, and Domenico Gabrieli.
