Abstract:This paper examines the trombone and piano works of Anthony Plog, including 3 Miniatures (1994), 4 Themes on Paintings of Goya (2001), Divergent Roads (2014), Initiatives (2014) and Interplay (2014). In it, I provide an analytical overview of each of these five works as well as suggestions for effective performance. I also discuss how Plog’s writing has reached the trombone community, and how each of these pieces can serve on a trombone recital program. I pay particular attention to Interplay for Trombone and Piano, a work I commissioned as part of this doctoral research, which I hope will become a valuable new piece in the trombone repertoire.
