A fine example of Lindberg's Virtuosity

"It's quite interesting to note how Lindberg's sound changes over the years. If you listen to this recording and then listen to one of his more recent releases, you can hear how his sound has become more refined, crisp and "tight".His extreme high register (high F, etc.) also becomes stronger over the years. Just goes to show that even the world's best can still get better. This CD contains great examples of the "Classic" Trombone Concertos (that David Cadenza is unbelievable!), and the World Premiere recording of the de Frumerie Concerto is just as good; if not the most exciting piece on the whole album. However, I too noticed some spots where Lindberg's tuning is less than perfect (particularly Grondahl). Nevertheless, Lindberg does incredible justice to each piece he records. Definitely worth your money!"
Really hit the spot.

"I was looking for a good recording of the David Concerto for college auditions this year, I believe I found it. The concerto is one of my favorite pieces of music ever, and this recording does justice to it with the usual Lindberg flair. Highly recommended. Buy it! Worth every penny."
In aww and confused at the same time...

"This cd is , yes, another great accomplishment and performance by Christian Lindberg, one of if the not the best trombonist of our time. I really enjoyed the David Concertino and Morceau Symphonique because I have played them before, and it is great to listen to someone a million times better than you play a piece that you are familiar with, so that you can get a grasp of how it should be played and how it sounds. BUT, I was really suprised at how Lindberg plays the Grondahl Concerto. His tune is way off and his tone and pitch never seem to be what they are supposed to be. Either that or my ears are out of whack. I was disappointed, but he does redeem himself in every other piece. The cd is worth buying for every song except the Grondahl. Only in my opinion."
