Grondahl: Concerto in F Minor for Trombone (Piano Reduction)
Launy Grøndahl was a conductor and composer. He was pupil of Axel Gade and Ludolf Nielsen. From 1925 to 56 he was permanent conductor of the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra. His compositions include stage music, orchestral music, concertos, chamber music, piano works, songs. He also collected and arranged a considerable amount of Danish traditional fiddler's tunes for folk dances.
This work was composed in 1924 during a stay in Italy. It was dedicated to Vilhelm Aarkrogh, a member of the Royal Orchestra in Copenhagen, who was the first soloist. The work has become a standard inclusion in the recent trombone repertoire. At the express wish of the composer, all three movements have the same basic tempo (indicated by the metronome marking of 80).
This publication is a reduction for trombone and piano, as listed on the AMEB Trombone Grade 8 Syllabus.
