Does anybody out there know who Rimsky-Korsakov wrote his Trombone Concerto for?

I'm currently writing a thesis on this concerto
It was written in 1877 for the Cronstandt Performances with the Russian Navy Band (it was premiered in the same performance as the Oboe concercto)
The soloist in the premier was Warrent Officer Lyenoff
anything else you need I may be able to help. Maybe

Hi Howard,

If I recall, just about all the info you need about concerto can be found in RK's My Musical Life.  There's even some tantalizing evidence for WHY RK composed the concerto for trombone of all things.

Any chance of getting a PDF of your thesis once you've finished?

I too would enjoy reading your thesis. I stumbled upon the Concerto on youtube and instantly fell in love with it. I enjoy most of RK's works, especially Processions of the Nobles. I intend on performing his concerto one day and I would really appreciate it if I could learn everything I can from him and his piece.

Finished it at lunch today.  I really liked the ideas you collated from your sources, and the hypothesis you developed and supported.  What capped it off was that it was actually READABLE!

Nice job!

And thanks for sharing!

It looks interesting.  The first page (20) I turned to had this typo...


Quote
The David concerto has been continuously played by professional players with orchestras and wind bands and has been recorded numerous times by famous trombone performers such as Christian Lindberg and Branimir Slokar exist

I'm presuming that "exist" isn't really part of a three-part name such as "Branimir Slokar Exist"

yeah, I had to hand it in sometime and didn't proof read it in as much detail as I wanted. There is also a typo in the first paragraph that I can remember seeing as I handed it in.

Speaking of "handing it in..." I hope your committee liked it as much as I did!
