Melodrama, sentimentality, vulgarity, and sheer cockney cheek: the Victorian era was a period of extremes. With brass bands abounding in concert halls, bandstands and even street corners, the trombone flourished in this heady social and musical atmosphere. This varied collection of popular Victorian solos ranges from Home, Sweet Home! to Grand Variations on Father's a Drunkard and Mother Is Dead. With idiomatic arrangements for the intermediate trombonist why not wallow in nostalgia and recreate the spirit of a lost age?
