|Solo trombonist on a stage, could it be something?|
|Yes, if trombonist's name is Elias Faingersh,
the concert is going to be
a very special journey indeed....
.... His musicality is superb, his technical ability is enormous; even
verbally this artist is something extraordinary.
The music Elias Faingersh performed is entirely his own. He started the

|He can be hysterically funny - in any case if it is performed by Elias Faingersh...This talented trombonist offered the audience a personal and humorous portrait of his relatives, his music and his life… There is the same warmth in his stories that one finds in the works of Isaac B.

Faingersh’s music is avantgard-ish and experimental in certain pieces while it moves back to traditional Jewish folk music in others…His works often go from finely tuned and low-voiced to explosive vivaciousness and happiness…The music never goes beyond comprehension and it describes different experiences that he has had, for example a sexual act he witnessed in the subway in Tokyo or an argument…Faingersh renders that which he sees with warmth and humor so that one goes away from his performance with careful optimism.|
|“.... The music has a strong and important role in the play already from its inception… It is written and performed by the very musical and inventive trombonist Elias Faingersh who deserves a great deal of credit…”|
