“Despite its loudmouthed reputation, there is so much beauty in the bass trombone. The aim of this album is to showcase all the best sides of the bass trombone: robust yet fragile, colourful and flexible, juicy bass notes and beautiful melodies. By commissioning and playing new works and allying myself with great friends on trombone, organ, harp and piano, I have attempted to give new colour to the bass trombone repertoire. I hope the album can be of inspiration for many future bass trombone recitals.”
– Clare Farr

Clare was born in Stockport, England in 1975. Her musical career started at an early age playing piano and violin. It was after her family’s move to Jørpeland, Norway in 1989 that she opted for the louder, more social life of the bass trombonist. Following bachelor studies in Stavanger and Manchester, she graduated with a master’s degree from the Norwegian Academy of Music in 2001. Her teachers included Leif Værum Larsen, Aline Nistad and Ingemar Roos.

In her subsequent years as a freelance musician, she held long-term positions with the Oslo Philharmonic and Norrköping Symphony Orchestras, and regularly worked with many Norwegian and European orchestras and ensembles. She combined her work as a freelance musician with the position of General Manager of the Norwegian National Youth Orchestra until 2012.

Clare has been Principal Bass Trombone of the Norwegian Radio Orchestra since 2013. She is a founding member of the Norwegian Trombone Ensemble and is active as a conductor, teacher and adjudicator in the Norwegian brass and wind band community.
