Notes and Editorial Reviews

The unique qualities of the American trumpet tradition are celebrated in this wide-ranging disc. From the drama of Leo Eylar’s dazzling Dance Suite to the wit of William McKinley’s Miniature Portraits, virtuosity and brilliance are assured. The two songs from Sondheim’s musical Sweeney Todd, orchestrated by McKinley with the composer’s consent, convey a quality of ardent determination. Jeffrey Silberschlag is the dedicatee of a number of these works and he carries on the illustrious lineage of American trumpeters. He is partnered by Gerard Schwarz, himself one of the great trumpeters of his generation, before turning to conducting.
