Notes & Reviews:

For Berlioz, writing in 1844, the trombone was associated with a clear symbolic dichotomy, representing at times the heavenly, sacred, and numinous, but at others the hellish, profane, and phenomenal. But these characteristics have been dissolved over the centuries, and we're left with a sorely misunderstood instrument. This recording highlights these strengths by pairing works, swiftly alternating between 20th-century showpieces and 19th-century songs, thus resurrecting the long-lost Jekyll & Hyde character of the solo trombone.
