Description: Trombonist Lindberg is now also a conductor and this first release with his own orchestra contains three rare items: a classical opera overture (of which there aren't many in Sweden), Leifs' 1930 variations which start with untouched Beethoven and end up granitic and modern, anticipating his mature style, and the carefree, attractive neo-classicism of Linde's 11-minute mini-concerto from 1967. Richard Tognetti (violin), Nordic Chamber Orchestra; Christian Lindberg.
