Program note for Jacob's Sonata for Trombone

This Sonata is a musical showcase for both the trombone and piano . It gives both musicians a chance to exhibit both fast, technically-challenging playing, as well as slower, lyrical emotions. A number of musical themes, with moods ranging from bold, to exciting, to grandiose, can be found throughout the composition, as a conversation between the performers. The frequent dialogue between the trombone and piano parts keeps the performance of this piece flowing and captivating from start to finish.
