||"Two Moods for Trombone & Wind Ensemble" was written in 2000 by Frank Ferriano. This is an expanded version of his "Two Mood for Trombone & Piano". The band parts are not too difficult, but there are frequent meter changes between 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4 in the first movement (Romantic). The second movement (Lively) is jazz-flavored, but the rhythms are repetitive. This movement is a bit more challenging for the band. The Trombone soloist has to be a very good player as there are sections in alto clef and the range is high. A great piece to feature an outstanding Trombonist.
