Notes and Editorial Reviews

Record of the Year, Stereo Review

"an audiophile's dream come true" -- New York Times

One of Gerard Schwarz's final recordings as a soloist and first as a conductor, The Sound of Trumpets, was also a prototype for the digital recording process. Recorded in 1979, it has remained a favorite in the catalog ever since.
