This paper consists of a new performance edition of the Sonata for Trombone and Piano by Alec Wilder. The five movements of the work are corrected for errors in the original manuscript publication, including inconsistent markings and notation and 1s presented in a printed format. This edition is based on the 1965 recording by John Swallow on Golden Crest Records, RE-7015, 1965. The recording was made with the composer present in the studio. This edition will make the performance of the piece more legible and consistent for the performer.
