Trio Sonata

Tomaso Albinoni
Catalog numbers: 

SMC SU328/ HL 3776222

Detailed Instrumentation: 
Trombone Trio
Composed in Venice in 1694, this was orginally set for 2 violins, violoncello, and harpsichord.  In a four movement format common in Albinoni's time, the original composition shows the composer's ability to spin long beautiful lines over a "walking" bass line as well as his considerable contrapuntal skill.  This arrangement has some modifications in articulation and range in order to make the transcription for trombones more effective.  The first trombone part is written in tenor clef with an additional part in bass clef for students at different levels.
