Trumpet Concerto & Elegiac Rhapsody
Simon Desbruslais, trumpet
For this recording, ABMC supervised the recording of the Trumpet Concerto and Elegiac Rhapsody, provided orchestral management, operations/logistics, and orchestral fixing.
"Four Stars...Beautifully performed, highly original disc." BBC Music Magazine
"Four Stars. Toby Young's The Art of Dancing is inspired by the idea of the baroque dance suite, though here the dances are modern...The different movements are all beautifully differentiated and this engaging work deserves wider currency." Planet Hugill
"Desbruslais’ and Hammond’s advocacy of this unfamiliar repertoire can only be admired and once again the contribution of the superbly drilled English String Orchestra under Kenneth Woods is exemplary. While trumpet enthusiasts need not hesitate, the rewards for those beyond that circle are also ample." MusicWeb International
