A Tribute to Ben Johnston

23 October 2019

Antonio Jiménez Marín pays tribute to Ben Johnston. The American composer Benjamin Burwell Johnston died in July this year at the age of 93. He was best known for extending Harry Partch´s experiments in just intonation tuning to traditional instruments through his system of notation. Having studied with the trombone soloist and composer Mike Svoboda, a former student of Ben Johnston, Antonio presents this special performance (a live recording from the Swiss première in Basel) devoted to his stage solo work for trombone with percussion called “ONE MAN”.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jq7qCWf9Dts&embeds_euri=https%3A%2F%2Fantoniojimenezmarin.com%2F&source_ve_path=MjM4NTE&feature=emb_title
