Bujole

This is a concert duet for trombones and piano.  I wrote it in 2001 for Joe Alessi and Chris Houlding to perform and it's without the shadow of a doubt my best brass piece.  Probably as a result it's also the least performed of the lot!  It's only moderately hard to play (as long as you're not the pianist) because Chris issued the threat that he and I might perform it at Dartingon that year.  This we duly did so I made sure there wasn't any stress.  In the interests of egalitarianism, it's not scored for trombones 1&2 but for "trombone" and "other trombone".  As to the title - suffice to say that it is called that for the same reason that turnips are called turnips: it just is!

Once again, good old Warwick are the work's publisher.
