“... This excellent piano reduction is perhaps the closest that you will get to the true Mahler 3 without an orchestra … excellent editorial notes and performance advise based on his (Christopher Mowat) experience as one of our finest trombonists. In addition, a list of translated German terms gives the performer a concise image of the sound and style that Mahler wanted...” Reviewed ‘The Trombonist’

Chris Mowat
Chris Mowat was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. As an undergraduate he was Silver medallist in the Concours International d'Execution Musicale de Geneve. Before joining the Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2000 he was Principal Trombone in the BBC Symphony Orchestra from 1981, having previously held the same position in the Royal Philharmonic, Halle and the BBC Philharmonic. He also appears with other major British orchestras including the Academy of St Martins in the Fields, English Chamber, London Philharmonic, Philharmonia and the London Symphony. He was a member of the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble and founder member of its successor, London Brass. As a soloist he has performed concertos with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Festival Orchestra. He was previously Professor of Trombone at the Royal College of Music and the Trinity College of Music.

As arranger for Philip Jones Brass Ensemble and London Brass, his music is published by Chesters and Brass Wind Publications. His arrangements and compositions have been recorded by artists ranging from the Berlin Philharmonic Brass to Desford Colliery Band and many young trombonists will be familiar with his music that appears in the syllabus of the ABRSM AND GSMD examination syllabus.

Much of his music has been recorded on the Teldec and Deutsche Grammophon labels and played on BBC Radio and Television and Classic FM. He is a record reviewer and writes on brass topics for the BBC music Magazine.
