The orchestra…continued with Jonathan Leshnoff’s handsomely wrought, lyrical Trombone Concerto. Christopher Dudley, the soloist, playing glowing melodic lines over autumnal string harmonies... An animated central section featured a leaping solo part and playful interplay among the string sections... the afternoon’s keenest discovery was Mr. Leshnoff.
