The trombone is the main character of the new piece by Malin Bång. She has worked with the composition class of the Academy of music and drama in Gothenburg. The concert presents several first performances – a unique possibility to taste what’s on right now in contemporary music. The trombone, one of the most dynamic instruments of the orchestra, is the main character of the evening.
“The trombone is too sacred to be used too often!” said Felix Mendelssohn. The instrument can produce glissandi, soft, intimate sounds and extreme loudness – up to 120dB, equalling a pneumatic drill and definitely a force to be reckoned with.
So how has Malin Bång and her composition students dealt with this challenge? It’s a privilege for the Gothenburg audience to discover. The concert also includes music by Swiss composer Katharina Rosenberger.
Malin Bång explored early on the acoustic instrument’s capabilities of producing other sounds than traditional tones. Instead, her music often explores movement and energy. This is a concert that promises exciting encounters with the unpredictable, with contrasts, intensity and intimacy. The concert also features a work by Swiss composer Katharina Rosenberger, who works in the same spirit.
It doesn’t get any newer than this.
