If you are hiking deep in the forests of Sweden, somewhere north of Uppsala, and strange and fanciful sounds emerge from behind the next tree... then it isn't necessarily a moose! It isn’t possible for a solo debut CD to be more colorful and bursting with life as this: Lars Karlin, the winner of the German Music Competition, presents himself for the first time on Genuin truly at the center of the action. Together with his musical friends he plays his way through the Nordic compositional landscape and a diverse array of styles: romanticism and classicism, jazz and multiphonics. A must for fans of the trombone and the Arctic Circle!
"Hats off to all involved in this enormously enjoyable production and most of all for Lars Karlin’s brilliant musicianship and virtuosity. A must for all trombone enthusiasts and all lovers of entertaining and thrilling music off the beaten track."
