Dedicated to Christian Lindberg

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Eddins
Trombone virtuoso Christian Lindberg has had over 80 concertos written for him. Lindberg admits that there are parts, sometimes large parts, of the three concertos recorded here that are virtually unplayable, but he has mastered them and offers no indication of stressful exertion; he and the Oslo Philharmonic, conducted by Peter Rundel, play with style and apparent ease. Berio's "Solo for trombone and orchestra" is the most traditionally modernist piece, with a spiky harmonic language and angular melodic contours. It's virtuosically impressive, but is not one of the composer's most substantial works. The Xenakis concerto "Troorkh" is the most striking piece on the CD. It...

Trombone virtuoso Christian Lindberg has had over 80 concertos written for him. Lindberg admits that there are parts, sometimes large parts, of the three concertos recorded here that are virtually unplayable, but he has mastered them and offers no indication of stressful exertion; he and the Oslo Philharmonic, conducted by Peter Rundel, play with style and apparent ease. Berio's "Solo for trombone and orchestra" is the most traditionally modernist piece, with a spiky harmonic language and angular melodic contours. It's virtuosically impressive, but is not one of the composer's most substantial works. The Xenakis concerto "Troorkh" is the most striking piece on the CD. It demonstrates the composer's remarkable skills as an orchestrator, which allow him to draw such otherworldly sonorities from the orchestra that they sound like they could only have been produced electronically. The concerto keeps the trombone at the upper extreme of its register for mercilessly long stretches, set against massive, granitic blocks of orchestral sound, to a genuinely dramatic and awe-inspiring effect. Turnage's concerto "Yet Another Set To" is occasionally reminiscent of Bernstein, and it offers the audience the most hooks; its repetitions make certain gestures memorable, and the incorporation of skewed jazz licks gives listeners a sense of familiar territory. The sound quality of the SACD is excellent -- clean and spacious, with good balance between the soloist and orchestra.
