Romance for Trombone and Piano - Trombone Solo

Playing level - Grade 8

Romance for Trombone and Piano was composed by Dale Vail in 2017. Vail wanted to write a work in the style of a romance, with his own harmonic colours, and stylistic influences.

Romance is harmonically fluid, modulating between tonal centres, specifically around Gb and Db major. The searching for the work’s home key reflects a yearning to find something more. The theme is developed as the work goes on, becoming more longing, exploring the trombone’s higher register to evoke a passionate desire to find completeness.

The work comes to an end, wavering between Db and D major, before finally settling in the work’s opening key.
