Notes and Editorial Reviews

This disc, along with its partner, A Night in Vienna, heralds the launch of the Brass Classics label. The label's Artistic Director, internationally renowned trumpeter Paul Archibald, collaborates with pianist Juliet Edwards to perform a selection of original pieces from the French school of trumpet writing. Alongside popular works such as Ravel's Habenera, Honegger's Intrada, the Françaix Sonatine and the Hubeau Sonate, are featured lesser-known gems by Jolivet, Ibert and Damase, and works by their contemporaries Pierre Gabaye, Marcel Bitsch, Paul Bonneau and Henri Tomasi. Paul's and Juliet's performances crackle with energy and bring many shades of colour to this subtle and intricate repertoire. Their individual virtuosity and Read more unique quality of ensemble is clear throughout. Read less
