Notes and Editorial Reviews

This disc is a real joy. It has given me enormous pleasure and I played it to my sixth formers who were genuinely enthusiastic. If music and performances can do this it proves the power and the value of music and the fundamental goodness of the human spirit.

The soloist is my type of performer. Everything is thought out and logical and what a super sound he has. Simply magnificent. I love the brightness of his playing and he also has a real sensitivity which makes the trumpet sound so beautiful. What a pity that this instrument has been somewhat debased by its misuse and abuse!

The enthusiasm in the orchestral playing was a revelation as well. I adored the vigour and excitement. Why isn't all early music played
Read more like this? I do not want to limit this splendid recording to students alone but such performances are invaluable to students when all the lines are clearly defined and can be followed and analysed from the score.

The slow movement of the Michael Haydn was so good that I thought I was in heaven. Really choice!

Listen to the elegance of the Torelli and the simply wonderful slow sections of the central movement. It is almost too beautiful. I adore the way the open-air style is captured. The articulation of the finale is well-judged. It is all too short though, but then that is better than all the padding and repetition one associates with some later composers!

The sound engineers have done a superlative job.

I have always rated Telemann higher than most of my colleagues do. He was not trammelled by academic correctness. I adore the intimacy of this concerto here brilliantly brought to life! Listen to those high trumpet notes and just admire. That's all you can do! What secure intonation! What vibrancy!

I need say no more!

 Faulty Record February 21, 2014 By Wendy B. (New York, NY) See All My Reviews "I have received a CD disk that skips inor rushes in a few places on this recording. I don't know how else to communicate about this. It is the Cd , not the player as the other rcds I received work just fine. Can you help me? This is the Trumpet concertos with Crispian Steel-Perkins. The parts that don't skip sound incredible, but I would like to hear the whole concerto when I listen." Report Abuse
