The name ‘Tintomara’, which features as both Ensemble and CD name refers to a composition of the same name by Folke Rabes: the dualistic figure from ‘Törnrosens bok’ by the Swedish author Jonas Love Almqvist reflects the male and female characters of both instruments. Thus inspired, the ensemble has developed manifold arrangements, solo pieces and duets into an unusual, contrasting and surprising programme.
WIM VAN HASSELT (Trumpet)
JÖRGEN VAN RIJEN (Trombone)
On this programme Wim Van Hasselt & Jörgen van Rijen explore the versatile, ambiguous character, the range of colors, possibilities and even boundaries of the combination of trumpet and trombone, in which the soprano voice of the trumpet forms a wonderful combination with the tenor of the trombone.
