Elias Faingersh

As a graduate of both Malmö College of Music and Manhattan School of Music, Mr.Faingersh developed his unique performing style. The blend of the original music, elements of drama, and personal sound, has become the artist’s trademark. The way Mr.Faingersh uses his trombone, as well as his stage presence, distinguishes him from any other artist on the scene. His publicly and critically acclaimed show “Trombone Magic” has earned him several major Swedish artistic awards. The show has been recorded for Swedish National Television, Latvian TV and German Radio.

eliasHighlights of the “Trombone Magic” from the last couple of years include solo performances at The Royal Danish Opera; Romeo Dreaming with Kroumata 2010, Israel tour “E.Faingersh Renaissance Show” 2009-2010; New-York 2010; “Hamlet-Drama for Trombone and Orchestra” with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra TV production 2008-2009; “Lucerne Festival” Switzerland; “ArtGenda” festival in Hamburg; “Nova Estonia” festival of contemporary music in Gdansk, Poland; “Kaliningrad State Gallery” Russia; Recital at “Target Studio”, Congress Hall, Riga, Latvia; “BIBA” brass festival, Karlskrona, Sweden.

Mr. Faingersh is much-sought composer with theatre companies in Scandinavia.
His music is used in more than 30 stage productions and with large number TV and Radio shows.



Coming up next: my new solo show (Teater KEF Production) – “A Solo from the Pit”: The Second Trombone’s Voice – premieres in Israel on May 18th, then tours Ukraine and St. Petersburg (Russia) in June.


Glad to be an endorsement artist of the “Remic Microphones”.

In the past 20 years I’ve been working exclusively with trombone and live electronics, playing my solo performances all around the world. And I must say that in what I do, a good microphone is absolutely essential. The “Remic Microphone” for brass (REMIC W3000) is definitely the best one I’ve had so far and I must say that the REMIC Team has done a brilliant job.

I warmly recommend it! - Elias Faingersh - Trombone Magic.
