Any quartets out there for Bass Trombones?

Post by Zandit75 » Sun May 27, 2018 10:09 pm

As the title suggests, I'm looking for suggestions for Bass trombone quartets.
Our local Bands League has introduced new rules for next year where we can put together quartets/ensembles from multiple bands around the state.
Having a chat with a couple of other trom players over the weekend brought up the suggestion for a Bass Trombone quartet, or even ensemble, depending on how many people we can get together!
I'll consider all difficulties, so please throw some suggestions our way!

There are plenty of tuba quartets. Look at TubaPeter.com. I may have seen one or two bass bone quartets, but that may have been Christmas music. Tonally a bit dull, in my opinion.

Randy Malmstrom in Portland, Oregon has written several arrangements for bass trombone quartet. Some have been published (I think by Cherry Classics), but he makes most of them available for free.

This is one of his: http://www.dwerden.com/music-videos/tro ... m?vid=1882
