Premiere, Manhattan School of Music, February 1992. David Taylor, solo bass trombone. Recorded for New World Records. Published by MMB. 10’.

Comment: When I heard Dave Taylor perform Histoire du Soldat I decided on the spot that I would compose something for him. Shtik is based on a famous routine by Lenny Bruce.
