One of the great musical communicators of our time, Trombonist Christian Lindberg performs virtuoso concertos dedicated by him by composers such as Berio and Xenakis, but is equally at home in light music genres. Here he pays his respects to the great trombonists of swing and jazz, revelling in Glenn Miller's Moonlight Serenade and Fats Waller's Keepin' Out Of Mischief Now. The 2011 centenary of Lindberg's fellow Swede, the great tenor Jussi Bjorling, has also occasioned a tribute in A Night at the Opera, a medley of favourite arias. Lindberg's great friend Jan Sandstrom has contributed two pieces: Song to Lotta and A Christian Song, and in a nod to one of his first discs, Lindberg returns to Vivaldi's Four Seasons, giving a dare-devil performance of Spring on his alto trombone. The swinging, glittering and lush accompaniments are provided by Lindberg's 'own' band - the Swedish Wind Ensemble of whom he is Chief Conductor.
