Barumba is an original composition by former iTromboni Bass Trombonist Kenneth Pearce. It was the very first original composition written for the ensemble. It is a light hearted, playful Bossa Nova which attempts to capture a bit of the droll humour of its composer!
This 3-minute composition is scored for 4 Tenor Trombones, 1 Bass Trombone and is suitable for medium-advanced performers. Trombone 1 contains a repeated 16 bar improvised solo and Trombone 3 contains a high D!
Flight of the "Bumblebeasts" is an iTromboni signature tune based on Rimsky-Korsakov's famous interlude from The Tale of Tsar Saltan.
Be prepared to lift off with this blindingly fast, technically challenging arrangement by Neal Bennett. Neal can also be heard as the Bumblebeast on iTromboni's first cd: "there goes the neighbourhood".
This 2-minute arrangement is scored for 4 Tenor Trombones, 1 Bass Trombone and is appropriate for advanced performers.

Jim Tranquilla's beautiful arrangement of The Humming Chorus from Madama Butterfly was written as an homage to legendary trombonist Dave Robbins and was performed by iTromboni at a Memorial Concert in Dave's honour in 2005.

Having written over five hundred choral works, Salvation is Created is perhaps Pavel Chesnokov’s most famous. Yet ironically, it was one of his very last sacred works before he was forced to secular composition by the Soviet government. Its popularity reinforces why Russian liturgical music is so extraordinary. It is laden with rich and fulfilling harmonies and yet plaintive and mysterious by nature.
Jim Tranquilla's masterful arrangement brings together a beautiful communion hymn based on Kievan chant with an homage to one of his favourite trombone solos of the entire orchestral repertoire, Rimsky-Korsakov's Russian Easter Overture.
This 3 1/2 minute arrangement is scored for 1 Alto Trombone, 3 Tenor Trombones, 1 Bass Trombone. It is for medium-advanced performers.
