Ole Edvard Antonsen

Enthusiastic reviews for Antonsen and Lindberg in Behac Munroh.

Ole Edvard Antonsen and Christian Lindberg made no less than 10 performances in less than six weeks of Lindberg's celebrated double concerto for trumpet, trombone and orchestra! First out was their collaboration with Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, then Turku Symphony Orchestra, and October 21-26, 2004, they toured Spain performing five concerts with Christian Mandeal and his Euscadi Orchestra followed by a BIS recording. Through the first week of November Antonsen and Lindberg gave three performances of the piece accompanied by The Royal Norwegian Navy Band in Norway.

The famous Spanish critic María José Cano wrote this about the performance and the piece after the Spanish première: "The piece Behac Munroh by Lindberg is brilliant and spectacular. A collage with reminiscences of Jazz, American music, Spanish...a thousand things, all put together with diabolic rhythm in a fantastic and extrovert  way. The fusion between the two solo parts and the bombastic orchestra score was important for the general impression. The two brass solo parts showed the total range of the instruments with all colors, fireworks, various techniques, and sound palettes. Lindberg in leather trousers was dominant on stage as well as Antonsen, and both impressed with great control and sound quality."
