Listen Again- Haydn Trumpet Concerto

BBC Radio 3 is re-running my performance of the Haydn and Telemann trumpet concerti with Philippe Schartz and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales this Sunday, May 27th, at 5 PM on Discovering Music.

The Haydn Trumpet Concerto on one rehearsal may not be one of those projects one looks forward to for months like a Mahler symphony or a recording of a world premiere, but I have very fond memories of this concert- the orchestra and I were feeling very simpatico about Haydn’s style that day, and Philippe, the orchestra’s solo trumpet and former solo trumpet of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, played great and also offered his own insights on the instruments and the pieces with charm and wit.

 

Stephen Johnson is the erudite and engaging host.

Here’s the blurb from the Radio 3 website
