Good classical trombone?

Post by araeed » Wed Oct 17, 2018 12:09 am

Hey there,

I'm looking for some really great and fantastic classical players or recordings that you guys could recommend. Starting on trombone in a jazz enviroment really gave me a lot of jazz player to listen to, but almost no classical, unfortunately. Alessi, Lindberg, Pryor, Vernon and Markey are pretty much the only names I know, so any suggestions are open!

Much appreciated! :)

A few more ideas (plus broadening up the scope, because there's too much good trombone playing that is neither jazz nor "classical", which most often is taken to mean more strictly orchestral and/or solo from the orchestral and conservatory tradition)

Tenor trombone
Jorgen van Rijen, a fantastic trombonist with amazing artistic integrity. He has many recordings. Also crosses over genre boundaries.
Ian Bousfield
Gordon Wolfe

Bass trombone
Stefan Schulz
Brandt Attema

For new music
Some of the above plus the great Dave Taylor and Mike Svoboda
Check out Felix Del Tredici, an up and coming specialist of contemporary trombone who's already had several pieces written for him and will without a doubt be a major figure in that field in the decades to come


For earlier music played by specialists of historical trombones
My mentors Catherine Motuz and Charles Toet
Simen van Mechelen
Adam Woolf
Wim Becu
Greg Ingles
But mostly in that genre you should look for ensemble recordings (they usually involve combinations of the names above) - Concerto Palatino, Oltramontano, Caecilia Consort, Quicksilver, Dark Horse Consort to name a few. There is one CD in particular that every trombonist should own called Fede e Amor, hands down one of the best albums featuring trombone, ever.
