Principal trombonist of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Jörgen van Rijen is also much in demand as a soloist with a special commitment to promoting his instrument. Various composers have written new pieces for him, including James MacMillan and Theo Verbey, whose works are included on the present disc together with Luciano Berio’s SOLO for trombone and orchestra.

The present recordings were made at concerts with the Concertgebouw Orchestra, conducted by Iván Fischer, Markus Stenz and Ed Spanjaard respectively. They have previously been showcased on three different discs on the RCO’s own Live Horizon label, and are gathered together here for the first time. The disc therefore highlights the versatility of van Rijen as a musician, but also of his instrument as perceived and presented by three very different composers.

Licensed from RCO Live. Hmmm...

As indicated, these compiled performances were previously released across three different double-SACDs on RCO Live (Horizon 01, 04 and 08).

While it's not a new release, it is convenient to listen to these works in a single set. The compositions are noteworthy; the Macmillan concerto has been performed by van Rijen with several orchestras. Sound quality is superb, engineered by Everett Porter and assistants.

Original format: 24-bit / 352.8 kHz (DXD) (MacMillan); 88.2 kHz (Verbey); 96 kHz (Berio)
