More Alto Trombone History

•Added several more sources to the Alto Trombone Timeline. There are now more than 50 primary sources for the alto timeline (see alto trombone bibliography). Many of them confirm that historically the alto trombone was primarily an instrument pitched in the E-flat orbit (D, E-flat, F).

•Also added a new post, called Alto Quotes, that offers a sampling of some of the positive aesthetic opinions that well-respected musicians and commentators have held about the alto trombone. It includes quotations from Brahms, Berlioz, George Bernard Shaw, Horatio Parker, Igor Stravinsky, Norman Del Mar, and others.horatio_parker
