Review:
"Trombonists are always on the lookout for worthy solo repertoire. Steve Witser, assistant principal trombone of the Cleveland Orchestra, takes two routes on his handsome debut recording. He embraces baroque and romantic music that has been transcribed for trombone and he delves into the 20th-century fare specifically written for the instrument. Purists might wonder if a trombone has a place in a work such as Jean Baptiste Loeillet's Sonata No. 1 in F major, but Witser approaches it with such stylistic acumen that the music emerges in elegant, vibrant fashion....Eric Ewazen's Sonata for Trombone and Piano is a playful, lyrical gem. Witser plays everything with utmost clarity and expressive sensitivity, and his friends (all superb Cleveland musicians) make vivid contributions." (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
