Year of composition
This is the version for 8 trombones of the piece that was originally composed for eight horns. Although it is a mono-timbre piece, I have tried to look for the contrast extending the different registers of the trombones and playing with the characteristic effects and sounds of the instrument.
All the eight parts dialogue prominently, and are equally important with similar levels of difficulty. The piece starts with a short slow part where a faraway melody is accompanied by distant sounds. Without interruption, a faster section follows where warlike and violent fragments alternate with others which are more heroic and melodic.
