Hello!
I'm a undergraduate music college student from Sweden. I've just started to plan my graduation concert which will be in June 2017 and I have started to sort out the solo pieces. But, I'm in the lookout for good chamber music pieces and in particular for trombon and marimba. I am looking for something a bit technical and modern and not very jazz heavy like a lot of marimba/trb pieces out there.

If anyone know any great pieces for trombone and marimba, please share it in this thread. It should be playable for an undergraduate level student and maybe around 15 minutes or longer.

Hope you have some tips guys.
Take care!

15 minutes! That's going to be a serious test of an audience's stamina.   :/

How about Schubert's or Gounod's "Ave Maria"?

They're not 15 minutes, they're not highly technical and I don't know that they have been already arranged for trombone + marimba but... beautiful melody over lots of arpeggios... they seem like felicitous candidates.

Thanks for the reply.
Well it's more of an exam than a concert so the jury don't need to have too much stamina, they're getting paid to sit there.
It's sounds like good pieces for a concert but not quite for a graduation consert, but I'll check it out for the future.

Take care!

I have written a piece for bass trombone and marimba, published by Warwick Music... you can also catch it on youtube.

Chris' piece sounds great.  I found another one ("Pair Up") on YouTube by a guy called Myles Wright.  Nice piece, not too complicated, and you can get the sheet music through his website.  Between that one and Chris', you'd have about 14 minutes.

Has anybody arranged Air for marimba and trombone? That'd be pretty easy, and pretty.

I've got a piece called "Duo for Bass Trombone and Marimba" by Robert Bankert (dedicated to Tom Streeter).  I played it 35 years ago...It was challenging but fun, as I recall.

Again for bass trombone and Marimba is "Largo Tah" by Gordon Stout.  I have heard Justin Clark play "Capriccio" by William Penn.  Originally for Tuba and Marimba, it's tough, but pretty cool.

A performance that no one will listen to unless they are paid... even in an academic setting, something is going wrong there.  :/
