Szeged Trombone Ensemble

Szeged Trombone Ensemble

The success of Szeged Trombone Ensemble lays in its unique sounding. The eight-member group consists usually of six tenor trombones and two bass trombones, but sometimes they change this compilation to accomodate several tunes. The members may occasionally play on alto trombone, euphonium, even on contrabass trombone. The musicians are also used to perform in smaller formations, as they easily switch into quartet or sextet ensembles. Members are solo artist on their instruments yet flexibility, being one of the main traits of each individual, allows them to become great accompanist of each other while playing together. Completed with percussion and other brass instruments the ensemble can perform genuine specialities of all sort of different music genres. During the performance they constantly prove the audience that there is life beyond the limits of their instruments: the ensemble is characterized by virtuosity and sound-range that can be described as extreme in the trombone world. Their exclusive instrumentation is individually tailored to and for them. Because of the deliberate instrument-unlikeness, the members find themselves in the most challenging situations. Thus, breaking down the limits of the instrument, the musicians enter into the musical space where they stand in front of the audience not any more as eight soloists but as the "Szeged Trombone Ensemble". Their performances, supplemented by classic, homogenous trombone ensemble sound give the audience an extraordinary colourful musical experience. The Szeged Trombone Ensemble is more than just a "group of performers". Thanks to their cooperation since 2005 they have become a true musical community, and this is undoubtably heard and felt during the concerts.
