Scott Anderson and Michael Cotton will present a recital of music for trombone and piano on September 19 at 7:30 p.m. in the Glenn Korff School of Music’s Kimball Recital Hall on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.

This program will feature a first half consisting of little-known works from the Paris Conservatory Competition repertory. These pieces have been staples of the French Repertoire but are rarely performed in the United States anymore. The second half is planted firmly in the 20th and 21st centuries. The most compelling of the works is a relatively new piece by composer Jacob Ter Veldhuis (aka JacobTV) titled “I was like Wow”. The piece takes on the topic of war in a multimedia presentation including video, audio and trombone. The final piece on the recital is Anderson’s arrangement of an Oasis song for alto trombone and three trombones.

Anderson is Hixson-Lied Professor of Trombone in the Glenn Korff School of Music at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. He is the head of the Brass and Percussion Area and trombonist in the University of Nebraska Brass Quintet.

The performance is free and open to the public.
