Abstract

Johann Ernst Eberlin (1702-1762) regularly composed for the alto trombone as an obbligato instrument in his oratorios and schuldramen. His works are an important predecessor of concerted music for trombone in the Classical era, though trombonists rarely perform his arias in the present day. This resource provides an analysis of three arias composed by Eberlin that contain trombone obbligato. Although the arias “Was hat mein Aug erblickt!” from Die Blutschwitzende Jesus, “Fließ o heißer Tränenbach!” from Der Veruteilte Jesus, and “Menschen sagt, was ist das Leben?” from Der verlorene Sohn have survived in editions by Robert Haas, found in volume 55 of Denkmäler der Tonkunst in Österreich, little help with respect to performance practice is to be found here. This study, then, offers a detailed approach to performance practice and suggested ornamentations for the trombonist are provided for each aria. Appendices include the original trombone part overlaid with suggested ornamentations added and a new edition of the score with the previously missing figured bass restored.
