About the album

Since my early youth, music has played an important role in my life. I had the privilege of growing up in a musical household, and being encouraged from the beginning to learn to play an instrument. As early as my fourth year I wanted to play the trombone and since my eight year, when I actually started, my love for this instrument has only grown stronger, culminating for now with my appointment as pricipal trombonist with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. The trombone has many wonderful aspects and so I have tried, on this CD to emphasize its versatility. Not only its style is rich and diverse - its repertoire extends from early music to the contemporary scene, and from romantically melodious to powerful and virtuosic - but also the range of scorings in which it is used is very wide. And so I am very pleased that so many of my colleagues and other wonderful musicians have been willing to work together with me on this special recording project. In addition to a number of ‘classics’ from the trombone repertoire, I have sought out lesser-known and less frequently recorded works, including a brand-new piece by Martijn Padding. All of the pieces have been performed in their original scoring. Jörgen van Rijen
