Christian Lindberg’s achievements for the trombone can only be compared with those of Paganini for the violin or Liszt for the piano.
Having premiered over 300 works for the trombone (including more than 30 composed by himself), recorded over 70 solo CDs, and having an international solo competition created in his name in Valencia, Spain, he is today nothing less than a living legend.

The Roman Carnival Overture is sheer exhilaration as a concert-opener. The curtain will fall on another crowd-pleaser, Dvořák’s poetic Eighth Symphony, resonating so it seems with songs of the meadows and dances from the villages of his native Bohemia.
Mozart’s father sacrificed his creative aspirations to promote his genius son, but still produced a sizeable opus, including a three-movement trombone concerto. Sandström’s Motorbike Odyssey is a journey as well as a vehicle for trombone virtuosity, late 20th century style.
