The trombone in Baroque chamber music — 2 Comments

  1. Perhaps I didn’t read your article carefully enough. But, I will assume that you are aware of Telemann’s Sinfonia in F Major (TWV 50:3) that is scored, along with other instruments, for 3 trombones and ‘cornett, which I assume is cornetto. You can find the original manuscript here: https://imslp.simssa.ca/files/imglnks/usimg/0/00/IMSLP249620-PMLP404575-Mus-Ms-1034-97.pdf ¶ I was listening to a recording of it this morning by La Stagione Frankfurt and wondered what the instrumentation was to achieve such a heavenly sound. So, I searched for a score and found the manuscript. Having played lots of Renaissance music (many years ago) in a wind band (with two sackbutts), the sound of cornetto and sackbutts/trombones is still very pleasing to me. So, I was delighted to see that Telemann has used that combo in at least one piece.
