D.M.A. Recital Document. SONG SETS BY BEETHOVEN, BERG, AND LUTOSLAWSKI: TRANSCRIPTIONS FOR TROMBONE AND PIANO WITHIN A LECTURE RECITAL. The purpose of this project was to transcribe and adapt idiomatic songs for the trombone and present the songs in a lecture recital that demonstrated the efficacy of the vocal works as literature for the trombone. The song sets chosen for this project represent three different periods of music composition, from Romantic to mid-twentieth century. The Romantic song set of Drei Gesänge von Goethe by Ludwig von Beethoven was chosen to best display the melodic and vocal quality of the trombone. Sieben frühe Lieder by Alban Berg was chosen to demonstrate the chromatic capability of the trombone as a melodic instrument. The tonal and dynamic ranges of the trombone, as well as its rhythmic and articulation abilities were exercised in Fünf Lieder by Witold Lutoslawski.
