Notes and Editorial Reviews

As the proverb goes, necessity is the mother of invention. And one brief look at the repertoire for the trombone will show how inventive trombonists need to be. One way of enlarging the repertoire is to arrange the works of Baroque masters for trombone and organ. Then it can even happen that the trombonist suddenly finds himself taking over the part of the solo violin in Antonio Vivaldi's La Primavera - of course with a twinkle in his eye. As you will hear in this music, Hannes Meyer's Love Play, a hymnal partita in the Baroque mode, definitely has its humorous sides as well. Thomas Horch is the principal trombonist with the Symphony Orchestra of the Bavarian Broadcasting Corporation in Munich, a position he has held since 1990 As the proverb goes, necessity is the mother of invention.
