"This recording offers an extraordinary breadth of style and performance."
- The World of Brass
"Lindemann... has the ability to play with a wonderful classical sound, while still having access to the fiery tone necessary for the showpieces on this CD." - The WholeNote
Heralded internationally as an outstanding artist, trumpeter Jens Lindemann has enlisted the talents of The Canadian Staff Band's 30-piece ensemble for his second Marquis recording, Rising Sun. Lindemann's musicality and virtuosity coupled with the warmth and skill of The Canadian Staff Band clearly demonstrate the brilliance of this collaboration.
The music offers an eclectic mix of standard repertoire and original compositions, some of Lindemanns finest work to date. This musical journey takes the listener from Japanese flavoured pentatonic harmonies found on the title track, to fiery temperaments peppered throughout Slavische Fantasie, and goes on to soothe with the familiar sounds of classic Gershwin delivered in a unique Lindemann style.
