Join Aurora’s Principal Trombone, Matthew Gee, for a late-night musical journey through the bittersweet landscapes of Vaughan Williams’ Songs of Travel, the fierce chill of Schubert’s Winterreise and the dizzying terrains of Jan Sandström’s A Short Ride on a Motorbike.
Marijana Janevska’s creative reimagining of excerpts from Schubert’s Winterreise (Winter Journey) is scored for solo trombone and bass clarinet, piano, accordion, percussion and double bass, and brings bold new colours and textures to this iconic song cycle.
Also featuring is Jan Sandström’s richly evocative A Short Ride on a Motorbike for trombone and tape, a reduction of the composer’s acclaimed Motorbike Concerto which presents a modern musical retelling of Odysseus as he travels the world with his trombone.
With performances of other inventive new arrangements of Vaughan Williams and Schubert for solo trombone, this Lock-In promises to be a fascinating exploration of this most expressive, flexible and surprising of instruments.
