Notes and Editorial Reviews

The new CD of the trumpeter Joachim K. Schäfer focuses on Bach and Dresden. Bach, who never actually worked at Dresden, had a close relationship with the Dresden court, and was influenced by the local preference for the Italian style. Bach adapted concertos by Vivaldi and Marcello, which Schäfer again arranged for his Dresden Baroque Soloists. They play Bach’s music in a chamber music formation, in which Schäfer can show his great skills as a trumpeter, converting his instrument into an equivalent partner to the violin or the violoncello. Joachim Schäfer is regarded as one of the leading trumpeters of his generation. He regularly impresses audiences and critics alike with his technical sovereignty, as well as his Read more effortless, stylistically confident, and dynamically sensitive musical performance, which he uses to set high standards.
