About the album
Out of Bounds contains interesting and little known 20th and 21st century music for bass trombone in a chamber music setting. The instrument is rarely heard as the soloist with chamber ensembles and most of the pieces on this disc are rarely performed or have not previously been recorded. The bass trombone can be heard running as a rich thread through the works.
Michael Eversden was born in England and grew up in the rich musical scene of the London Borough of Redbridge. He was a member of the Redbridge and Essex Youth Orchestras and from 1975 to 1978 the National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) appearing throughout the UK. Michael studied bass trombone at the Royal College of Music under Gerry McElhone, bass trombonist with the Royal Opera, Covent Garden. In 1980 he was appointed as principal bass trombonist with the North Netherlands Symphony Orchestra (NNO) and has since worked as a freelancer with nearly all the major Dutch and British orchestras. He is a founder member of the Dutch Brass and The Trombonauts (educational concerts for junior school children), teaches at the Gro- ningen College of Music and also composes and arranges music for the bass trombone and other brass.
Mit Out of Bounds präsentiert der gebürtige Londoner Michael Eversden eine aufregende Auswahl an praktisch unbekannter Musik für Bassposaune aus dem 20. und 21. Jahrhundert, gerade in einem kammermusikalischen Umfeld erscheint diese Besetzung ungewöhnlich. Auf dieser CD jedoch zieht sie sich wie ein roter Faden durch die Kompositionen. Entdecken Sie neue Werke, manche sogar in Erstaufnahme, alle jedoch ungewöhnlich, interessant und in jedem Falle hörenswert.
