'The Neoclassical Trumpet' sees Jonathan Freeman-Attwood address the question "what if the chromatic trumpet and the modern Steinway Grand had existed a good century or so earlier and composers had recognised their duo potential?"

With new arrangements by pianist Daniel-Ben Pienaar, Freeman-Attwood successfully re-imagines works by Stravinsky, Leigh, Fauré and Respighi.

Each of the composers represented here wrote significant parts for the trumpet in various chamber and orchestral contexts. The only original solo trumpet piece by any of these composers is Martinů’s Sonatine.

Stravinsky’s Pulcinella inspired a variety of duo solutions in the decade or so after its premiere, the most famous being the Suite italienne (initially for cello, but more famously for violin), but this is the first for trumpet. The main difference with this present version is that all the movements from the Pulcinella Suite are incorporated to form a sizeable new recital piece.

As a trumpet player and recording artist, Jonathan has attracted plaudits from the press. His producing career has resulted in over 200 albums and several awards including eight Gramophone Awards. Jonathan broadcasts regularly for BBC Radio 3 and is in demand as an essayist for EMI, Warner, Deutsche Grammophon and other major record labels.

Daniel-Ben Pienaar is active as a recitalist and chamber musician. He has received great acclaim for his interpretations of Bach’s keyboard music.
