THE AUSTRIAN TROMBONE QUARTET

TROMBONE ATTRACTION

Since 2006, the four gentlemen from Trombone Attraction have experienced a lot.
 Together they have won a few competitions, played hundreds of concerts, visited many countries, recorded three and a half CDs and sold them all over the world, earned some money, spent even more, also spent dozens of hours on the plane, in delayed trains and cramped cars, emptied bottles of beer and wine to toast successes, defeats or just for fun, drank about 29.106 shots of espresso, survived business and personal crises, lived, loved, practiced, rehearsed, laughed, cried, argued, reconciled, married three enchanting women, got five children, bought two flats and built one house. And it goes on…

This nationally and internationally acclaimed ensemble has always endeavored to show the trombone in all its facets, thus even attracting the attention of such renowned concert halls as the Musikverein Wien or the Wiener Konzerthaus. As a consequence, they have succeeded in bringing the formerly underestimated trombone into classical concert halls, thereby inspiring and thrilling whole audiences.

Their celebrated appearance at the famous Stresa Music Festival in Italy or the Festival Cuivres en Dombes in France as well as performances in Germany, Greece and Hungary show that today’s audience can still be charmed and delighted by a young, up-and-coming ensemble. Because of their many innovative ideas the four highly motivated trombonists can offer their listeners a very interesting and different sound experience.
