The most typical feature of the trombone is that the tones can be changed continuously by means of a telescoping slide mechanism – it's called glissando. The trombone players of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra show how it works!

Sometimes the trombone glissandi sound as funny clown music. But the trombone can of course play all sorts of music; fast and slow, solemn and swinging.

This video is part of a series of playful videos on how the instruments used in a symphony orchestra function and sound. In each film, musicians from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra talk about their instruments and play one or several musical pieces together.

The series about the orchestral instruments is produced with the support of Konserthuset Stockholm's main sponsor SEB.
