Bremner ,DavidVirtuoso Works for Trombone


Born in New Plymouth, David Bremner studied music at Victoria University, Wellington. He has held the position of Principle Trombone of the NZSO since 2002.
 Winner of the the best Classical album at the 2009 New Zealand Music Awards ,this CD features 8 pieces of music specifically chosen by David. Gareth Farr, Chris Gendell, Anthony Ritchie, and Paul Creston all feature here with compositions in the main commissioned for inclusion on this CD, alongside 3 fantastic transcriptions by Mark Lawrence of Famous Lieder from Richard Strauss and Johannes Brahms.
 Also featured on the album is Sarah Watkins (piano), a hugely gifted pianist who holds both a Doctor of Musical Arts and Masters in collaborative piano from the Julliard School in New York City, and a Bachelors from the University of Canterbury, alongside Leonard Sakofsky, Principal Percussionist with the NZSO who also has a great pedigree in the US.
 This album pushes the scope of the trombone as a solo instrument (heard most obviously in Kenneth Young’s ‘Panic’),showing a side of the instrument seldom heard. Conveying a multitude of emotions this is a CD that is a must for any budding trombonist and a truly remarkable New Zealand album in its own right.
“Gung-Ho is one classy production. Robert Catto's cover image of a feather caught in time and space is as arresting as they come and David Bremner's playlist shows just why he is one of our premier trombonists… Chris Gendall's Gung-Ho scores high-tensile virtuosics for Bremner, Watkins and ace percussionist Lenny Sakofsky. Its stalking octaves and twitchy chords patrol an expressionist space and the group's ensemble work is awe-inspiring.” (William Dart, NZ Herald)
