Asterism for 16 Trombones

Asterism, scored for 12 tenor and 4 bass trombones, was commissioned by Joseph Alessi, Principal Trombone of the New York Philharmonic for one of his annual Trombone Workshops in 2003. I always thought the sound of a trombone choir was the most marvelous sound imaginable so when Joe asked me to write a piece I took the opportunity with pleasure. An Asterism is an astronomical term meaning a star pattern or group of stars.
