  • Vademecum - bass trombone and brass band
View PDF sample

For bass trombone and brass band, score 91 p. and parts.

Vademecum was commissioned by the Metropole Brass Brand and dedicated to Geert De Vos. The concerto is an ode to three distinct facets of the bass trombone: its dark, harsh and aggressive character - its lyrical, melodious and romantic nature - its playful, virtuoso abilities.
    • School Life describes the composers personal battle with certain aspects of the educational system.
    • Love Life describes the energy between a man and a woman when love is dawning and how the outside world reacts to it.
    • Café Life captures the atmosphere of the legendary 'Thursday night' parties ...

Dr. Denson Paul Pollard on Wim Bex and Vademecum:
'Having met Wim Bex on several occasions is that he is a genius! His piece Vademecum for bass trombone is a very beautiful and complex three movement composition that has been very well received by the trombone community! The interesting thing is that it was his very first composition!! When I asked him about his method and why he chose to compose a piece for his instrument (he is a bass trombone by the way), he said that he had been storing up ideas for a composition in his brain for a while ... and with Vademecum, he put them all on paper! It is a very fun composition to play!'
Pollard is professor of music in trombone at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.
