List of Works


Taking its name from the CD, the Trombonis Australis Project has been established by Greg van der Struik to develop a substantial contribution to brass repertoire through close collaboration with composers and other performers.

The Project’s aims are to promote Australian music for brass, in particular trombone by presenting works in performance, recording and score format along with providing analyses of the repertoire for educational and research purposes.

Scores are sourced directly from composers or from the Australian Music Centre. Unless marked as being specifically for students or indicating student use in the title of the piece, all listed works are considered by the composers as being suitable for advanced student or professional use. Timings are approximate.
