About the CD Hit It!

The most recent gem will come out in 2014, as a result of long, keen, inexhaustible work. On the record we find a great number of interesting and special pieces, all of which pose daunting challenges for the musician both in terms of technique and music.
The interpretation of the pieces by the pianist, Naomi Kimura, reveals unbelievable precision and musical sensitivity. Naomi Kimura is a soloist and university instructor herself.
The tromobone concertos of Derek Bourgeois and Thom Ritter George belong to the most challenging pieces ever written for a bass trombone. In contrast, 4 Serious Songs (Op.121) by Brahms is magical, thought-provoking and invoking deep sentiments in the performer. It requires the most loyal interpretation possible, even without words.
Corpus Trombone Quartet plays the Henri Tomasi piece with the usual professionalism, in perfect harmony with the soloist. The solo piece by László Dubrovay is testing the limits of the instrument and the player, whereas Hit It! by Rick Peperkamp is a light, cheerful piece, ideal as an encore, to end the concert with on a high note.


Matyas Veer - bass trombone

The wonderful country where he was born and his great family made it possible for him at the age of 9 to find his beloved instrument, trombone and singing. Though he was only a young boy, he knew that his encounter with music had decided his fate: music has become his lifelong love and ally. His parents, also professional musicians, suggested that he should pursue instrumental studies seriously, this is how he started to learn the basics of trombone playing, followed by advanced studies at the college of music and the Academy of Music with Tivadar Sztán and Dr. Hőna Gusztáv. Bass trombone was his final choice, together they won several competitions both in Hungary and all over the world, e.g. in New Orleans, Birmingham, Jeju in South-Korea. In addition, the Corpus Trombone Quartet, he was a founding member of, also won three first places in international competitions.
These were exciting, demanding times, getting up early in the mornings, marathons with the instrument in class, rehearsals with the quartet, concerts in the evenings. As a bass trombone player, he became one of the most universal musicians, who first played in the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra, then joined the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra (NedPho) in Amsterdam. Regular competitions, learning and his never-ending diligence bore fruit and brought success.
