Trumpet Masque sees renowned trumpeter Jonathan Freeman-Attwood explore his passion for expanding the instrument's limited chamber repertoire by imaginatively arranging Baroque works previously scored for alternative forces. In Trumpet Masque, Jonathan Freeman-Attwood and Daniel-Ben Pienaar take a radical new look at the seveneenth century with a compelling vision of repertoire historically far-removed from the traditional contexts of both trumpet and piano.
Through wonderfully vibrant programming and arrangements, this invigorating and warm-hearted chamber duo present music from Dowland to Purcell in an energetic, innovative and twenty-first century fashion. The aim of this recording is to open our ears to a period of unequalled variety, colour, regional diversity and expressive freedom: the Venetian world of Gabrieli, the great pre-Bach north German lineage of Buxtehude, Jacobean dances and songs and the great G major Sonata from Muffat's ‘Armonico Tributo' with its virtuoso and valedictory passacaglia, which appropriately ends the album.
Trumpet Masque provides a unique twenty-first century perspective on re-discovered chamber music of the Baroque period expertly re-worked for trumpet and piano.
