Notes and Editorial Reviews

What Simon Höfele does with his trumpet is simply sensational! The prizewinner of the German Music Competition and winner of the special prize "U21" of the ARD music competition shows all his skills on his GENUIN debut album in the Primavera Edition. It presents an electrifying program of contemporary music: from György Ligeti to HK Gruber, from André Jolivet to Toshio Hosokawa. What results is a firework of sounds, between delicate hints and shattering fanfares, between deep seriousness and teasing humor. Höfele and his colleagues on piano and percussion start with a debut that promises for a great career! Simon Hofele, only 23 years old, is one of the most exciting trumpeters of the up and coming Read more generation. Just this year he gave his debut with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, Konzerthausorchester Berlin, SWR Symphonieorchester, and more. He was also recently selected as a BBC Radio 3 new generation artist. Read less
