On Your Own Now was commissioned by Zachary Bond, George Curran, Jeffrey Dee, Brian Hecht, James Markey and Denson Paul Pollard.
This solo piece for Bass Trombone is challenging, yet fun to play and listen to.
It’s about stepping into the world as an individual in different stages of life.
There’s no accompaniment, there’s no support, there’s only you, on stage…
The opening starts very freely with lots of space for rubato playing.
But there’s also a very rhythmic part where a steady pulse is extremely needed.
