Trumpets - Jonathan Freeman-Attwood - Choir & Organ
01 September 2004Choir & Organ
Colm Carey has done the repertoire-deprived trumpet world a huge service. Virtuoso trumpeters Jonathan Freeman-Attwod and John Wallace join him in Hereford Cathedral for his trumpet duet arrangements of Rheinberger's richly contrapuntal violin and cello sonata, movements from Le Bourgeois Genilhomme
, and a reworking of Elgar's Organ Sonata no.2 which evokes the spirit of the Severn Suite
. The quality of the solo playing is spell-binding; Carey is assiduous in allowing the trumpets to blossom and blaze in the rich, nutritious loam of Hereford's IV/67 Willis/Harrison organ.
