In the expansive acoustic of Hereford Cathedral, Jonathan Freeman-Attwood, John Wallace and Colm Carey draw the listener into a late-Romantic world of outstanding and strikingly idiomatic ensemblemusic.

Originally released in 2004, ‘The Trumpets That Time Forgot’ has been re-issued as part of Linn’s ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the label’s award-winning catalogue.

Colm Carey’s new arrangements transform these pieces to reveal an extraordinary new 19th-century sound world of dazzling dialogues, wide dynamic range and beguiling lyricism.

‘The Trumpets That Time Forgot’ deliberately makes up for ‘lost time’ to give the solo trumpet a richly deserved history in this period.

The Strauss movements provide a trio of light vignettes between the significant four-movement Rheinberger Suite (a Concerto in all but name) and Elgar’s Sonata. In the case of the latter, this version provides a new dimension to a work which Elgar composed originally as the Severn Suite for brass band and reworked as his 2nd Organ Sonata. Here, the two worlds meet in the middle.

Trumpeter Jonathan Freeman-Attwood is Principal of the Royal Academy of Music in London and also pursues an active career as a performer, writer and award-winning record producer.

John Wallace is principal trumpet with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Long acclaimed as a virtuoso trumpeter, his performances as soloist with leading orchestras and conductors throughout the world have established him as a musician of enormous distinction.

Colm Carey, a leading organist of the younger generation, has gained a reputation as a remarkable and distinctive performer. Colm Carey is much committed to the development of the organ as a chamber instrument and has commissioned and transcribed many works for different media involving organ.
