5.0 out of 5 stars Highly enjoyable, highly recommended! March 21, 2001
The amazing Swedish trombonist Christian Lindberg tries his hand at composition in the title track to the BIS CD Los Bandidos. Lindberg is arguably the greatest living trombonist, with a fantastically wide range, lovely tone quality, and technique comparable to that of the finest performers on any instrument, and he's a clever composer, too. Although you might not ordinarily think of the trombone as a solo instrument, Lindberg has made a career out proving that it is as capable and versatile as any other.
The concept of this CD is works arranged (or to use Lindberg's word, "stolen") for Lindberg and his accompanist Roland Pontinen. The subtitle of the CD is The Criminal Trombone 2 1/2, and yes, it is a "sequel" (with a nod to comedian Leslie Nielsen's Naked Gun movies) to Lindberg's earlier CD The Criminal Trombone. The CD features arrangements of J. S. Bach's Sonata in G minor, originally for viola da gamba and continuo; Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, originally for piano solo but most well known in the arrangement for orchestra by Ravel; three movements from Stravinsky's Firebird, originally for orchestra but here adapted from a piano transcription; and Drei Phantasiestücke by Robert Schumann, originally for clarinet and piano.
Listening to Lindberg play, it is clear that he loves what he does--the sheer delight of the virtuoso is unmistakable. A spokesman for contemporary music, particularly that of Scandinavian composers, he is also at home performing baroque, classical and romantic music with fluency. Lindberg has a significant history of commissioning many composers and furthering the literature for this fairly neglected instrument. As a trombonist myself, I am in awe of him--and that he's 42 (my age) and only started playing when he was 17 makes his accomplishment even more impressive. This disc is a marvel for music lovers of all kinds, whether they are trombonists or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christian does it again February 2, 2001
Stolen music? Who cares. This is fantastic trombone (and piano) playing by the world's leading trombone soloist. The music selection may not impress the purists, but it is very accessable to many who would not usually listen to a solo trombone album. As a brass teacher, even the parents of my students have enjoyed this selection and the fantastic playing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Los clásicos July 7, 2012
There are many pop CDs pretending to be classical music. This CD, despite its kitschy cover, is a cleverly advertised classical CD pretending to be pop: it contains transcriptions made and performed by the Swedish trombone virtuoso Christian Lindberg. He is accompanied by his contemporary Roland Pöntinen on a Steinway piano.For another album with Lindberg The Virtuoso Trombone Pöntinen opted for a Bösendörfer piano.

The cartoon on the back cover (likely designed by a relative of Lindberg) is supplied by a fake quotation from a fictional `Music Police Journal' - `Disgusting musicians without taste'. It clearly prompts that this CD should not discussed pathetically from a puristic viewpoint and the listener is suggested to enjoy familiar music transcribed for an unusual solo instrument. The playful mood is supported by a mocking preface ascribed on p. 4 to `Cristian Lindberg's secretary, a self-taught musicologist'.

Lindberg's technical prowess is astonishing. I'll follow the transcriptions.
In two cases - Mussorgsky's `Pictures from a Exhibition' (tracks 2-18) and Stravinsky's `Oiseau de feu' (tracks 24-26) - Lindberg's arrangements for a piano & trombone duo are ambivalent, since Mussorgsky's and Stravinsky's works exist both in a piano and in orchestral versions. Lindberg's transcriptions are derived from the solo piano versions (in Stravinsky's case, it is a transcription made by Guido Agosti), but he also keeps in mind orchestral timbres.

I always felt (maybe it is aberration of mine) that the sound of a full orchestra with strings and winds brings about something alien to Mussorgsky's piano structures.
