My first tour with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe was in 1997, playing Schubert in Salzburg conducted by Claudio Abbado. Plenty of lovely stuff for the trombones to play and what a treat to be on stage with such an incredible group of musicians. Since then I have been involved in countless tours around Europe, the USA and Japan, working with some wonderful conductors like Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Bernard Haitink, to name but a few. My COE colleagues are Håkan Björkman (Principal Trombone), Nicholas Eastop (Bass Trombone) and Jens Bjørn-Larsen (Tuba). For more information, please visit
