Baroque Trumpet Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Going back to a discussion started by @slartybartfast in the Album of the evening thread here: #11788

 

I figured let's open up a separate thread on baroque trumpet recommendations.

@BacHolz found this site, so I figured there's enough material to take this out of the main thread: My Top Ten List of Classical Trumpet Soloists Living Today | Trumpet Journey

 

Few of them seem to focus on baroque though at first sight, so I think some more digging is needed.

 

As a starting point for repertoire, we could have a look at Wynton Marsalis and Maurice André, and identify new interesting performances.

 

Baroque Music for Trumpets – Wynton Marsalis Official Website

Baroque Trumpet Concertos: Vivaldi, Torelli, Telemann, Viviani, Handel - Maurice André | Songs, Reviews, Credits | AllMusic

 

So far, we have identified Maurice André, Alison Balsom, Tine Thing Helseth, and Wynton Marsalis. Let me add (but not as a recommendation) Ludwig Güttler.

 

Any new discoveries please do post them here.

 

There seem to be very few albums, so please keep looking.

 

Currently trying out this 2007 release:

Looks tempting, Tafelmusik has done some nice stuff.

 

Thanks for the thread and to slarty for the impetus. I also enjoy Crispian Steele-Perkins and have these discs featuring Steele-Perkins & Keavy. Both are inexpensive Hyperion recordings.

Another musician referenced is Håkan Hardenberger and I've enjoyed his work.

If you like his artistry, there is this at a bargain price (used).

Excited by the new artists to be shared here, thanks to all.

 

And speaking of Tafelmusik, they are coming to Seattle soon.

John Wilbraham was probably the greatest trumpet player to come out of the UK in the 20th Century. The recording you list was done around 1970 when Wilbraham was in his mid 20's. He died in 1998 at the age of 53. Most of his great recordings were done around 1970. He was a gigantic man (maybe 6'8" and 300+ lbs.) and specialized in the tiny piccolo trumpet and in the baroque trumpet literature. He also played in some pop music albums - Magical Mystery Tour is one of them.

This album Argo ZDA-203 was released in 1975. You can see the size of Wilbraham at that time and the size of the piccolo trumpet.

 

I would also recommend the great Soviet (born in Ukraine) trumpet player, Timofei Dokschitzer. Maybe the finest trumpet player ever. I have a few EMI albums with him taken from the Melodyia label. Not so much baroque, however.

Thanks for the info on Wibraham. The release date mentioned by Qobuz was 2007, but neither the cover nor the sound looked very contemporary.

Thanks so much for starting this thread :)

 

This is one of my favorite types of music - I love Baroque, and I love trumpet, so . . .

 

Listening now to the Marsalis / Leppard recording you linked, and it's truly remarkable (and I hadn't heard it before). Absolutely impeccable playing from Marsalis (he plays all the parts).

 

How nice that almost all of these are available on Tidal / Roon, so no need to purchase until / unless it meets my approval ;)

This is a post from "Album of the Evening" and I think it is best offered here.

 

Another in the series with Niklas Eklund. I believe this is the last of five and I'll collect them all in time. As was noted earlier in the thread, the musicianship and sound quality are excellent at a very fair price.

 

"Art of the Baroque Trumpet, Vol. 5: An Italian Concert"

From Wikipedia...

 

"In 1996, Eklund won first prize at the first Altenburg International Baroque Trumpet competition, held in Bad Säckingen, Germany. As a specialist on the notoriously difficult baroque trumpet, he demonstrates exceptional interpretive skill coupled with a high degree of control and precision.

Christopher Martin, Principal Trumpet of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, says: 'Niklas Eklund's Art of the Baroque Trumpet series [on Naxos], is the most lyrically gorgeous trumpet playing you'll ever hear.'"
