The leading Danish Trumpet Player Ketil Christensen is here heard in three of the most famous concertos, each played in the original key and masterly supported by the young Latvian orchestra. The Haydn and Hummel being often recorded, however the Neruda is at present a rarity in the concert hall. Do not miss this fine CD!
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)
"Christensen's playing is stunning: reflecting the nuances of this music. Often sparkling, sometimes martial and when appropriate moodily reflective, this is a master-class in brass. The CD has superb sound which faithfully presents the textures of soloist and orchestra.".
John France
