About Wiser Than I:


Wiser Than I (2001) was composed for a bass trombonist friend who was looking for an adventurous, unaccompanied solo recital piece.  I began composing this piece for him in memory of another friend of mine, who had lost his life far too early to cancer, and whose personality I thought was well-represented by the bass trombone.
