Information about the programme

Nobody will expect the walls of the Munich Residence or the Evangelical Academy in Tutzing to come tumbling down when trombonists raise their instruments there, as once happened in Jericho. But it’s a well-known fact that these low-lying instruments are more prone to rich-hued sounds than to hypersensitive squeaks. Four trombonists from the BRSO have formed an ensemble that plays just such “trombone music” through the centuries and across the styles, allowing the dignity and sanctity of brass music to resound no less than its experimental and pop potential. Felix Eckert, Lukas Gassner, Uwe Schrodi and Csaba Wagner present original compositions and arrangements for trombone, including works by Orlando di Lasso from the late Renaissance (when the use of the trombone in its present-day form is first documented), solemn trombone “hymns” by Anton Bruckner, contemporary music by Iannis Xenakis, the advent of jazz and transcriptions of “beat music”, as the Beatles’ song Hey Jude used to be classified.
