Scene From the Silver Plate

Solo Trombone and Brass Band

Scene From the Silver Plate takes it’s title from the Rio de la Plata, the literal translation being Silver River.

This piece, using some of the traditional music from the region (Variants on the tango etc.), is quasi-incidental music from a fictional film, involving some kind of chase from the silver mountains to the estuary. Our fictional hero also has a romantic interest – will he make it away with his silver, and his lady?

The trombone duets with various members of the band, including solo horn, euphonium and cornet.
