Join us for this University of Illinois School of Music faculty recital.
Now in his third decade at the University of Illinois, Elliot Chasanov was appointed Professor of Trombone with permanent tenure in 1991. Prior to coming to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Professor Chasanov was principal trombonist and trombone soloist of the United States Air Force Band and Orchestra in Washington, D.C. (1981-1985) and professor of trombone and euphonium at Kent State University (1985-1991).
Chasanov has presented recitals in many of the world's most prestigious venues including The Royal Academy of Music in London, Warsaw's Frederic Chopin College of Music, the Haydn Room of the Esterhazy Palace in Eisenstadt Austria, Florianka in Krakow among many others. In 1985, at the invitation of the composer, he performed the world premiere of Frigyes Hidas’ Baroque Concerto for alto trombone and strings at the International Trombone Workshop. In review of his performance, The International Trombone Journal wrote: ”his sound might have been described as embroidered velvet-a dark tapestry, richly enhanced by brilliant reflecting surfaces…..The natural flow of the phrase directly confronted the perpetual dilemma of coupling a singing style with reacting control of movement."
