4.0 out of 5 stars The Christian Lindberg Show 26 Sep 2011
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some things you can take almost for granted: superb sound engineering from BIS and the best trombone playing from Christian Lindberg. What you can't take for granted is the music that Lindberg performs - his repertoire understandably has to leave the well beaten track far behind. That's certainly true here. The chances are you're going to here a selection of works you've never heard before when you buy this but I'm sorry to say you won't find any masterpieces here. That said, there's plenty to enjoy and the headine work "Motorbike Concerto" benefits from the close collaboration between composer and performer. I say "performer" advisedly" because Christian Lindberg does rather more than just play the trombone, adding vocalisations along the way. It would be good to see this work performed.

Going through the works on the disc; firstly Martin's short "Ballade" is a remarkably effective work for one just written as an exercise work for trombonists. The Serocki concerto is like many Polish works from the early 1950s where the composers write in the "official" communist style but sound like they're desperate to break out. It all still sounds amiable enough. Ernest Bloch's 3 movement symphony is attractive if not particularly memorable.

That leads us to the final "headline" work by a non too well known composer, Jan Sandstrom. The "Motorbike Concerto" is a trombone concerto. Apparently the motorbike idea was given to Sandstrom by Lindberg as he used the trombone to impersonate the sound of a motorbike. The idea from there was to use that sound as a link in a travelogue from Florida to Provence and then Australia before a final crash.
