Trumpets - Jonathan Freeman-Attwood - The Observer


13 June 2004
The Observer
Anthony Holden

Under the title The Trumpets That Time Forgot, the enterprising Linn label fills Hereford Cathedral with late Romantic music originally written for other instruments: Joseph Rheinberger's suite for violin, cello and organ, Strauss's 'Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme' and Elgar's second organ sonata (once his Severn Suite for brass band). The result is a vivid blend of Gothic splendour and pin-dropping intimacy, as these outstanding players explore a wide dynamic range of lively dialogue and solo lyricism in virtuoso style.
