Christian Lindberg: Golden Eagle
Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony no.3, op.55, E-flat major ('Eroica')
Concerto for Trombone and Orchestra:
It was a true revelation for me when I heard that Gilbert Varga had become principal conductor for Taipei Symphony Orchestra! Gilbert is one of my top favorite conductors, so when he asked me to come and work with his orchestra in a new trombone concerto to be premiered at these concerts I got so excited and enthusiastic. Gilbert is one of the really brave conductors in the business today, who dares to demand rehearsal time, and also dares to challenge the musicians to the absolute limit. Therefore he gets extraordinary results from all orchestras that he works with.
I often think about human beings and their characters as if they were an animal. Looking at the conductor Gilbert Varga there is no doubt that his bold and strong character reminds me of a Golden Eagle. I have therefore decided to call my new trombone concerto Golden Eagle and dedicated it to my dear friend Gilbert. The shape of the piece is very similar to my Clarinet Concerto The Erratic Oreams of Mr Grönstedt, Tuba Concerto Panda in Love Euphonium Concerto Olle and the Steamboat Jetty and my Flute Concerto The World of Montuagretta : There are 6 different sections(two of them being cadenzas) that goes attacca.
The names of the different sections are :
1. Earth Fanfare
2. Eagle Dance
3. Cadenza: Broken Sky
4. High Attitude
5. Cadenza: Loneliness
6. Wings on Fire
