Description: Along with well-written, detailed notes containing an impassioned argument for the trumpet as a concertante instrument, this offering gives us world premiere recordings of the orchestral versions of every work here except the Böhme concerto. Nor are the works in any way "sound-alikes" - echoes in form and content contain Mendelssohn, Paganini and Rachmaninov and the two large-scale concertos really do have you wondering why no trumpeter gets to play them in concert nowadays. Giuliano Sommerhalder (trumpet, cornet), Neue Philharmonie Westphalen; Heiko Mathias Förster.
