Christian Lindberg

He's been voted one of the Brass Players of the 20th century - to put that in context, he shared that honour with Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong.  Now Christian Lindberg has a growing reputation as a conductor and composer.He's performed the classics from the trombone repertoire and premiered more than 300 contemporary works, many composed especially for him.

Swedish-born Christian is currently in Norway working with the orchestra he conducts - the Arctic Philharmonia - before coming to New Zealand conduct and play the trombone for the NZSO for its Aotearoa Plus season, in Wellington this Friday 1 May and in Auckland the following night.
