Launy Grondahl (1886-1960) - Trombone Concerto

The Danish composer Launy Grondahl studied violin and composition from the age of eight, working with such luminaries as Bloch, Gade and Nielsen. At the age of thirteen he became a violinist in the orchestra of the Casino Theater in Copenhagen. He composed an early symphony, two string quartets, and a violin concerto. Then it was off for more study, this time in Paris, Vienna, and Italy. The Trombone Concerto was written in 1924 during his Italian sojourn. It is thought that Grondahl had the excellent trombone section of the Royal Orchestra in Copenhagen in mind when he wrote the work.
