This essay will explore the salient performance characteristics of three selected works for solo trombone by major composers of popular media. The works selected for this study are Colloquy for Solo Trombone and Symphonic Band by William Goldstein, Concerto for Trombone in C Major by Nino Rota, and Arrows of Time by Richard Peaslee. These composers have written extensively for television, motion pictures, theater, and dance. In addition to their significant popular media repertoire, these three composers have made a significant contribution to the solo trombonist's repertoire. Although these works have been performed, recorded, produced, and reviewed, they have not been studied together as a group, nor have they been established in the general repertoire for solo trombone.
