Wim Becu and Oltremontano
There are not many specialists on the “sackbut”, the predecessor of the modern trombone, and there are even fewer players of the Trombone Grande: the contrabass-sackbut. Wim Becu is the founder and artistic director of ancient music ensemble Oltremontano specializing in music from the 15th until the17th century. Oltremontano has made name as one of the leading ensembles of Renaissance music for wind ensembles. It also became a platform for the further development of historical trombones.
After the concert, Wim Becu gives a clinic on his beloved instrument, the sackbut.
