Notes and Editorial Reviews
In this wonderful recording, baroque splendor, atmospheric and stylish elegance and cheerful Christmas melodies are put together in masterful arrangements for a festive Advent trumpet gala. The outstanding trumpeters Gernot Kahofer, Manuel Lichtenwöhrer and Leonhard Leeb are supported by the organist Bernhard Macheiner and the drummer Thomas Mair. “Noble-blown trumpet concerts and poetic enchantment that will captivate you…” The ensemble from Vienna is praised by critics and audiences worldwide. Artistic brilliance and diverse, exciting programs merge into an evening full of emotions, regardless of whether they play in a concert hall, a church or a cathedral! The three trumpeters sound classics in new tones. All ensemble members are members of various ensembles, bands and formations and are outstanding soloists. “First-class musicianship and top-notch performance,” as a well-known conductor enthuses, is a matter of course with this ensemble. The Vienna Wind School is world famous - it is a breathtaking experience to hear it live. Classical arrangements of famous works of classical music combine with festive baroque, pop songs and elegant original compositions.
