14 More Baroque Trombone Recordings

I just added the below 14 recordings to the Trombone History Timeline. There’s some very nice music here! Three of the pieces (Picchi, Buonamente, Schmelzer) include two recordings of the same work; it’s always worthwhile to check out what different performers do with the same piece. Enjoy!
