This concerto, commissioned by music teacher William T. Robinson, was originally scored for Bass Trombone and String Orchestra. This Piano reduction was done by the composer and is a three-movement work approximately nine minutes long, each movement leading directly to the next.
The first movement opens with a slow introduction based on quartal harmony. The main portion of the movement is an allegro that explores changing meters. The second movement is slow, with a mournful character. The modal harmony is centered around D minor. The third movement is in an Afro-Caribbean style. The second and third movements include cadenzas for the soloist.Learn More

In 2018, Spanish bass and contrabass trombonist Javier Colomer will record a new album that includes works for trombone and organ as well as for unaccompanied bass and contrabass trombones. The music on this disc spans four centuries, from Palestrina and Gabrielli through Handel, Schubert, and Faure, among others. The newest piece on the album – a work for unaccompanied contrabass trombone by American composer Frank Gulino – has not yet been written.
You are invited to participate in this consortium to support the creation of “Low Blow,” a new work for unaccompanied contrabass trombone. For your $30 participation fee, you will be recognized as a co-commissioner in both the score and the liner notes of Colomer's new recording, receive exclusive performance rights to the work through June 30, 2018, and receive a discount code for 10% off of the entire Cimarron Music Press catalog through the end of 2017 (code is downloaded after purchase). The deadline to join the consortium is Friday, December 15, 2017, with delivery of the new work on or around January 1, 2018 via PDF.

He is a past member of the ITA Board of Advisors and also authored “The World of The Contrabass Trombone,” the first comprehensive method book for that instrument. Javier's advocacy of the contrabass trombone as a solo instrument is a natural extension of his experience as a performer and pedagogue, and he continues to regularly commission and premiere new works for the bass and contrabass trombones.
