Work introduction

SOLO for trombone and orchestra was written in 1999 for trombonist Christian Lindberg. “It’s not a concerto in the real sense of the word, even if the solo part is extremely, almost absurdly difficult”, wrote Berio. “The orchestral element is partially generated from the trombone voice, but the development and substance of the discourses differ enormously. The trombone and orchestra occasionally share the same key note, but they do not communicate with each other. SOLO is thus less of a concerto and more of an encounter between two solitudes.”
