Trumpet Concertos - Telemann, Haydn
Stephen Johnson explores the trumpet concerto, from Telemann to Haydn's ground-breaking masterpiece. Phillipe Schartz (soloist), BBC National Orchestra of Wales/Kenneth Woods.
Stephen Johnson takes the trumpet concerto as his subject, journeying from the baroque with a concerto by Telemann to Haydn's ground breaking masterpiece of the classical era. Phillipe Schartz is the soloist who at one point even ventures to play an original keyed bugle - a new kind of instrument that enabled the player for the first time to play all twelve notes of the scale, across the whole range of instrument, and which inspired Haydn to put pen to paper.
BBC National Orchestra of Wales is conducted by Kenneth Woods.
