AN ASSORTMENT OF NIBBLES
The first release from the Norwegian Trombone Ensemble on the LAWO Classics label – Nibbles – is nothing less than a box of assorted candy that transcends genre boundaries, albeit in a classical wrapper. The ensemble consists of four of Norway’s best trombonists, all of whom have many years’ experience from prominent Norwegian orchestras like the Oslo Philharmonic and the Norwegian Radio Orchestra. The works on this recording range in time from the 17th Century onwards, with genres from Baroque to Bossanova.
As the musicians themselves put it: “In our concerts we attempt to move effortlessly through many different musical styles, performing chamber music for trombones with excellence and a twinkle in the eye. We are aiming to convey the same lighthearted character with this recording and have put together a handful of pieces that we believe display all the fine and varied qualities of the trombone. The pieces cater to all tastes and span over 400 years, from Gabrieli and Beethoven to Alfie by Burt Bacharach, No More Blues by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Fascinating Rhythm by George Gershwin, and Money, Money, Money by ABBA. Sit down with your favorite nibbles, relax and enjoy the concert!”
The Norwegian Trombone Ensemble was formed in 2014 and consists of Audun Breen, Principal Trombone of the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, and Sverre Riise, Petter Winroth, and Clare Farr, the trombone section of the Norwegian Radio Orchestra. The four performers have extensive experience as soloists and chamber musicians. They are some of Norway’s most outstanding trombonists and master most genres, from renaissance and baroque to contemporary, jazz, and pop.

This album is really fantastic in all aspects. Musically it is unique, very attractive and beautiful. The timbre of the instruments is incredible. The performance of the musicians is perfect.
The first time I listened to this album, I called my wife over. We listened to the album together from start to finish without saying a single word. At the end of the album my wife said Pure Magic!
The music has an amazing materiality and harmonic presence. You will understand what I mean when you start to listen to it on your Hi-Fi system.
I offer my personal congratulations to everyone involved with the making of this album. I look forward to their next album. For now, this has become one of my favorite albums.
