Cast & Crew










Christian Lindberg...

is one of the most remarkable musicians of our time.
His career has taken him from the pioneer who established
the trombone as a solo instrument to the world famous virtuoso to whom the most prominent contemporary composers have devoted more than 80 trombone concerti. He is today regarded as THE trombonist of the 20th century and one of Sweden's foremost international musical personalities. Recently he has parallely established himself as a conductor and is now the chief conductor of two Swedish orchestras.
His early experiments with writing music for his own instrument have developed him into an internationally sought after composer with commissions from orchestras such as Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Scottish Chamber Orchestra. There are few other musicians who can show such versatility in their activities as Christian Lindberg and who do so many different things on such a high international level. When an international brass magazine made a ballot to establish the most important brass musicians of the 20th century, Christian Lindberg was voted among the first five together with, among others, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davies and Dizzie Gillespie.
