Notes:

The repertoire for trumpet is surprisingly large and varied but little, apart from the well known concertos by Haydn and Hummel, is at all well known. As a solo instrument, its status in the Baroque era was assured, since a large proportion of the music composed then was to provide ceremonial pomp. During the Romantic era, the instrument fell into serious neglect, largely due to the more obviously expressive qualities - both dazzling and introspective - of the violin, cello and piano.

The Mixed Dozen CD showcases the diversity of repertoire for trumpet and piano - from salon music to an acknowledged masterpiece and contemporary Australian compositions currently in school curricula - and also the range of moods and emotions an instrument with the brightest sonority of any in the orchestra can convincingly convey.
