Autograph musical quotation signed in full and inscribed "especially to John Pearson."
by CRESTON, Paul 1906-1985
Creston composed the Fantasy for Trombone and Orchestra in 1947."[Creston's] many virtuoso pieces display a light-hearted exuberance whose tone at times suggests commercial idioms. The best known are those that highlight unconventional solo instruments. He was one of the first composers to produce serious concert works for the saxophone, and featured the marimba, accordion and trombone in solo pieces as well... During the 1940s and 50s Creston was among the most widely performed American composers, although his work went into eclipse during the 1960s with the ascendancy of more radically modernist approaches. However, with the revival of interest in the American symphonic school, his music has found a new following." Walter G. Simmons in Grove Music Online.. Ca. 142 x 177 mm.
