Album information

Jonathan Freeman-Attwood's A Bach Notebook for Trumpet is a celebration of the music of the famous Johann Sebastian and ten other lesser-known Bachs, re-imagined for the combination of trumpet and piano.

Bach specialist Daniel-Ben Pienaar has arranged music from a great uncle, close cousins, distant cousins, and five sons, all related to the great J. S. Bach in a wholly unique recital programme.

Aesthetic passions drive the repertoire and performance choices as the duo explore vocabularies not usually associated with trumpet and piano chamber music: brushing up against ‘period' gesture, ornamentation and articulation, whilst also co-referencing less fashionable inspirations from the past, including those judged ‘romantic' in coloration, whether in the use of the pedal, rubati or articulation.

Jonathan Freeman-Attwood's is an established authority on Bach interpretation, particularly as it challenges and refocuses historical perspectives on ‘performance practices' and how recordings of the past can influence current priorities and tastes.
