I have chosen to study Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov's Concerto for Trombone, composed in 1878. The work is one that I have been studying as a performer and thus have opted to study it in-depth, looking into the differing interpretations of it by performers.
The two recordings that I chose are by Christian Lindberg, playing with the Kosei Wind Orchestra, and by Norman Law, with the Black Dyke Mills Band. The two recordings are quite dissimilar in many ways, including obviously the difference in accompaniment with the first being that of a wind orchestra, the format for which the work was originally composed, and the second that by a brass band as arranged by Gordon Langford - a very accomplished arranger and renowned composer.
The two performers have quite contrasting styles, which is evident when it comes to the interpretations of certain sections of the works, and especially the cadenzas. However, there are also lots of things that have remained unaltered from that of the original scoring, with the vast majority of notation and rhythm not being altered in any vast way.
Christian Lindberg is arguably the best trombonist of current times and thus any recording
