Parts:  B.C.


Crack was written for 2017 New Zealand Brass Band Championships Open Bass Trombone solo contest. There's no large story behind the piece, it's simply an attempt at a bass trombone solo that shows off the capabilities of such a powerful instrument. "Crack" may refer to the crackly sound associated with the instrument, or maybe the crack in the traditional style of Open Bass Trombone solos with a piece that is, at times, dark & light or beautiful & downright ugly. Or perhaps it will stir thoughts in the audience of what the composer must be smoking to come up with something like this... 

Crack, Jack Bewley
