Ben's Ramblings

New trb4 plus Ben

This spring I will record several new compositions written for me with the accompaniment of this new trombone quartet.

Bart, Quirijn, Martin, Tomer and Ben after their rehearsal.

  • Bart Claessens - solo trombone Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra
  • Martin Schippers - 2/3 trombone Royal Concertgebouw orchestra
  • Quirijn van den Bijlaard - solo trombone Brabants Orkest
  • Tomer Maschkowski - freelance bass trombone Berlin

The quartet was formed during our Japan tour with the International trombone Ensemble July, 2008.
They are working on their first CD and asked me to be soloist on their album. Because I need some
repertoire for one of my own projects I asked them to play on my CD.

I now have four new pieces written for me with trombone 4 which we will record coming springtime.
Vicent Egea, Steven Verhelst and Wes Funderburg wrote me some great new compositions.
Of course I will update you when the recordings are done.
