Christopher Schmitz has written a new major work, Sonata for Bass Trombone and Piano, subtitled 'Call of the Opera'. The work written in 2019 is dedicated to Metropolitan Opera Bass Trombonist virtuoso Denson Paul Pollard.

The work is in three movements: I. Allegro, II. Arioso, III. Vivace

Here is a brief description of the work by the composer:

Written for Denson Paul Pollard, Call of the Opera is a challenging three-movement sonata inspired by great melodies from the opera repertoire. Throughout the work, original themes interact with references to over a dozen well-known opera melodies; these references are (mostly) subtle, but an attentive listener may notice flashes of Wagner, Verdi, Puccini, Bizet, R. Strauss, and others.
