Lincoln, Neb.—Glenn Korff School of Music Professor of Trombone Scott Anderson will present a faculty recital on Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 7:30 p.m. in Kimball Recital Hall on the University of Nebraska–Lincoln campus.

The concert is free and open to the public. It will also be live webcast. Visit the day of the performance for the link.

“Composer Peter Schickele used to tell audiences at his concerts that they should be prepared to hear music they have heard before. The opposite is true of this recital,” Anderson said.

Anderson has long been a champion of French music for the trombone. This body of work has been at the core of his recital programs for more than 20 years. The music on his Oct. 6 recital will feature some of the best-known composers of this very specialized genre.

“Composers such as Edmond Missa, Georges Pfeiffer, Paul Vidal, Charles Tournemire, Philippe Gaubert and Carlos Salzedo are household names when it comes to solo music for the trombone. They are almost completely unknown outside of the trombone community, but that is less a problem for trombonists than others,” Anderson said. “The works by these composers are wonderful character pieces that challenge the performer and charm audiences. Many of the works on this recital cannot be heard on recordings or on any other media. Don't miss this chance to hear important and obscure music for trombone and piano.” 

Anderson will be joined by pianist Michael Cotton as they renew their annual recital performance.

Anderson is head of the brass and percussion area in the Glenn Korff School of Music at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. He holds the Vernon A. Forbes Chair as principal trombone in Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra. He is an active recitalist, chamber musician and orchestral musician.

He earned degrees from the University of Minnesota (D.M.A. 1995), Northwestern University (M.M. 1987) and Iowa State University (B.M. 1985). 

He has taught at Nebraska since 1996.
