Notes and Editorial Reviews

This CD is indeed special! Not only because it features some very special interpreters, but also because it marks a very special occasion - the 20th anniversary of a unique collaboration: that between trombonist Christian Lindberg and BIS Records. To appear as soloist with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra or the Chicago Symphony Orchestra is the ultimate dream of most musicians. To do this as a trombonist is unthinkable! Or, rather, it was unthinkable until Christian Lindberg made it come true. From the very beginning of his career, Christian Lindberg has refused to see any limitations to what one might do as a trombonist. And being a man with a vision, he has succeeded: During his 20 years with BIS, Christian Lindberg has recorded no less Read more than 30 highly acclaimed discs. In concerts he has given the world premières of 80 trombone concertos - and has continued to perform them, as shown by some 600 performances of Jan Sandström's famous Motorbike Concerto. In doing this Lindberg has revolutionized trombone-playing throughout the world. If we want a true measure of Christian Lindberg's greatness as a musician, we have only to look at the prestigious composers who have written music for him: Arvo Pärt, Luciano Berio, Sofia Gubaidulina and Toru Takemitsu are just a few. But on this, the first of three, discs to be released during the Lindberg-BIS Jubilee year Christian Lindberg returns to the roots of the trombone in his long-awaited recording of the Classical Trombone Concertos by Leopold Mozart, Albrechtsberger, Wagenseil and Michael Haydn. The concertos have been researched and edited with great care by Lindberg himself, and naturally he has also written the initiated liner notes. They are works that he has performed a great number of times over the years - but only now has agreed to record, the reason being the Australian Chamber Orchestra, with which he played in concert, and immediately fell in love with! And so did we - and so will you! P.S. During our Jubilee Year (April 2004 - March 2005) BIS will release no less than three CDs showing different aspects of the art of Christian Lindberg. This, the first, disc contains - in the form of two bonus tracks - appetizers from the other two. These are Lindberg the conductor (BIS-CD-1268), on which he proves his abilities with the baton on works by composers as diverse as Hugo Alfvén and Edgard Varèse. (The disc features the Swedish Wind Ensemble, who has recently appointed the versatile Lindberg their artistic director.) and, Lindberg - the composer (BIS-CD-1428), which will give a broad picture of his production thus far, including his flute concerto as well as a double concerto for trumpet of trombone. So keep your eyes - and ears - open for further news about Christian Lindberg and BIS! Read less
