About the album

This album is a unique collaboration between Eric Vloeimans and a full scale classical orchestra. Together with the orchestra and conductor Jurjen Hempel, Vloeimans strikes a bridge between many different styles, from classical to jazz, from western to eastern.

The principle work on this album is in fact Vloeimans’ very own trumpet concerto, Evensong in four movements which he wrote in collaboration with composer and arranger Martin Fondse. The piece Lex was written as the film score to the film Auditie/Audition (2011) an animation film about Lex van Weeren (1920-1996), a Jewish trumpet player and orchestra conductor who survived Auschwitz because he became the camp orchestra conductor and trumpet player in the camp orchestra. Waterfront was written for an open air concert at the Kralingse Plas lake and was in fact inspired by the music Leonard Bernstein wrote for the Oscar award winning film On the Waterfront. It has all the elements we expect from a film score: a long opening shot, introduction of the main character, suspense and high-energy action scene, to wind up with the finale: the title song. About the piece Requiem, Vloeimans states: I had no firm plans to write a classical requiem. Nothing serious had happened in my life that would call for an elegy. But magic went its own way, and things happened as they did: the composition ultimately wrote itself and became this Requiem.
Eric Vloeimans slaat elegante, virtuoze en inventieve bruggen tussen vele genres
De vermaarde jazztrompettist Eric Vloeimans bracht dit album, met zijn eigen gecomponeerde trompetconcert Evensong, uit op zijn 50e verjaardag. Zijn inventieve, virtuoze en elegante trompetspel vormt hierop een mooie combinatie met het Orkest van het Oosten. Samen met dirigent Jurjen Hempel worden bruggen geslagen tussen klassiek, jazz en westers en oosters klinkende muziek.

Naast Evensong bevat dit album de stukken Lex, Waterfront, Requiem en Your Majesty. Lex werd geschreven voor de film Auditie, over een joodse trompettist en dirigent die Auschwitz overleefde door in het kamporkest te spelen. Het stuk Waterfront is geïnspireerd op de soundtrack die Leonard Bernstein maakte voor On the Waterfront en het heeft alle aspecten van een soundtrack. Vloeimans zegt over Requiem dat hij geen plannen had een klassiek requiem te schrijven, maar dat het op een magische manier toch gebeurde. Your Majesty werd gecomponeerd voor de film Majesteit over koningin Beatrix, maar werd uiteindelijk niet in de film gebruikt. Later nam Vloeimans dat werk op met Kytecrash en speelde hij het in het Concertgebouw met de band van het Nederlands Korps Mariniers.
Ausdrucksstarke Werke für Trompete, die die üblichen Grenzen der klassischen Musik ausdehnen und bereichern.

Zu seinem 50. Geburtstag im März 2013 macht sich der Trompeter Eric Vloemans mit dieser Einspielung ein ganz besonderes Geschenk. Obwohl Vloemans im Wesentlichen als Jazz-Musiker auftritt, sieht er sich nicht nur in dieser Musik aufgehoben. Als klassisch ausgebildeter Trompeter und für viele Strömungen offener Interpret, komponierte er in Zusammenarbeit mit Martin Fondse ein Trompetenkonzert. Die Ersteinspielung dieses Werkes gemeinsam mit dem Netherlands Symphony Orchestra unter der Leitung von Jurjen Hempel wird ergänzt durch weitere Werke Vloemans sowie seines Freundes und Komponistenkollegen Martin Fondse. Die Werke des niederländischen Jazzers gelten als individuell, humorvoll und ausdrucksstark.

Eric Vloeimans (trumpet)

Eric Vloeimans (Huizen, 1963) is an improvising trumpeter and composer who regards the term ‘jazz’ as too limiting to describe his music. His work is characterized by melodic and lyrical power, and a distinctive, individual sound that is called velvety or whispering in the more subdued pieces. From 2006/2007 Eric Vloeimans has been active with two much-praised formations: the chamber jazz trio Fugimundi (Anton Goudsmit guitar, Harmen Fraanje piano) and the electric band Gatecrash, in which rock and funk elements can be traced (Jeroen van Vliet keyboards, Gulli Gudmundsson bass, Jasper van Hulten drums). With the latter group, he employs electronic effects in his trumpet playing for the first time. In addition, he continues to develop other projects, such as the band...

With the latter group, he employs electronic effects in his trumpet playing for the first time.
In addition, he continues to develop other projects, such as the band Oliver’s Cinema with accordion player Tuur Florizoone and cellist Jörg Brinkmann (CD available from August 2013, and a US tour in October 2014)) , and a duo with pianist Florian Weber, with a CD release : Live at the Concertgebouw in 2011.
His broad range of interests has led Vloeimans to collaborate with artists from other musical worlds. In the pop music area, these include Fay Lovsky, Doe Maar, Spinvis, Jan Akkerman and trumpeter Kyteman (Colin Benders). Where world music is concerned, Vloeimans was involved in projects with flamenco guitarist Eric Vaarzon Morel, Latin pianist Ramon Valle, and the fado-inspired Pessoa of Fernando Lameirinhas.
Vloeimans has performed as a soloist with classical ensembles such as the Matangi Quartet, the Calefax Reed Quintet, the Metropole Orchestra, the Gelderland Orchestra, the Limburg Symphony Orchestra, the Holland Baroque Society, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.
2011 saw the premiere of his first trumpet concerto, Evensong, with the Limburg Symphony Orchestra, orchestrated by Martin Fondse, and recorded for CD with the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra.
