About this album

Since my early youth, music has played an important role in my life. I had the privilege of growing up in a musical household, and being encouraged from the beginning to learn to play an instrument. As early as my fourth year I wanted to play the trombone and since my eight year, when I actually started, my love for this instrument has only grown stronger, culminating for now with my appointment as pricipal trombonist with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. The trombone has many wonderful aspects and so I have tried, on this CD to emphasize its versatility. Not only its style is rich and diverse – its repertoire extends from early music to the contemporary scene, and from romantically melodious to powerful and virtuosic – but also the range of scorings in which it is used is very wide. And so I am very pleased that so many of my colleagues and other wonderful musicians have been willing to work together with me on this special recording project. In addition to a number of ‘classics’ from the trombone repertoire, I have sought out lesser-known and less frequently recorded works, including a brand-new piece by Martijn Padding. All of the pieces have been performed in their original scoring. Jörgen van Rijen

Reviews

American Record Guide

All give the avant-garde music Van Rijen the opportunity to show rich tone, outstanding technique, and thoughtful interpretations.

Vrij Nederland

Zoveel stijlen, zoveel expressiemiddelen en Van Rijen lijkt ze allemaal te beheersen. En dan hebben we het nog niet over die fabelachtige toon.

Luister

In toon, dynamiek, kleur, muzikaal inzicht en zeggingskracht is Van Rijen ongeëvenaard. Hij is een hele grote!!! (...) Van Rijen imponeert: De eerste cd van een serie waarin Channel Classics solisten uit het Concertgebouworkest voorstelt, is meteen een voltreffer. Trombonist Jörgen van Rijen (30) laat in overwegend hedendaags repertoire horen dat hij vorig jaar terecht de prestigieuze Nederlandse Muziekprijs ontving.

Telegraaf

Er demonstriert eindrucksvoll die hohe Schule der Posaunenkunst. (...) Stereoplay (...) warme, gloedvolle toon van de trombone (...) (...) ongetwijfeld zal Van Rijens indrukwekkende muzikaliteit componisten stimuleren dit repertoire uit te breiden (...)

Hifi.nl

Geweldige muzikant. Prachtige, zeer uiteenlopende muziek. Hele fijne (SA)CD. Flauw gezegd: genieten geblazen.

De Gelderlander

Een prima visitekaartje van deze persoonlijke muziekkeuze. (…) Zangerige toonvorming. (…) (…) Overrompeld is zijn vermogen om de subtielste dynamische schakeringen aan te brengen (…) (….) Smullen geblazen voor de liefhebbers van twintigste-eeuwse muziek. Dit is eigentijds genieten
