Arrows of Time
The sound of the trombone, as the Bible has it, is mighty enough to bring the walls of Jericho tumbling down. And when the Day of Judgment is sounded, this is the instrument that is supposed to summon the dead out of their graves. But in his debut concert, Michael Buchanan will prove that the trombone, so wondrous and shrouded in mystery, is also admirably suited to chamber music and more delicate sounds – especially when such a master of the instrument plays it. Born in 1993 in Britain, he studied with Ian Bousfield in Bern and won the 2015 International ARD Music Competition in Munich as well as the audience prize, also triumphing at the Royal Over-Seas League Annual Musical Competition. The British Trombone Society immediately named him Player of the Year. At LUCERNE FESTIVAL Buchanan will play a colorful mixture of works originally written for his instrument and arrangements, featuring composers from Schumann to Bernstein and from Bruch to Ravel.
