The first volume in this groundbreaking series explores the 20th and 21st centuries’ most celebrated works for trumpet and piano; pieces which have allowed the modern performer to discover a kaleidoscopic palette of emotions and characters. From George Enescu’s Légende to Christopher Williams’s XX Mountains of Abstract Thought, the result is an exhilarating journey that surprises and enthralls the listener with tender lyricism, powerful sonorities and stunning virtuosity.

Making his Naxos debut as a soloist, Huw Morgan was winner of both the Prague Spring and Ellsworth Smith International Trumpet Competitions in 2016 and is internationally recognized as one of the most sought-after brass players of his generation. He combines a burgeoning solo career with his role as principal trumpet in the Sinfonieorchester Basel and as a founder member of London-based ensemble, Septura. Septura’s most recent Naxos recording (8.573825) was summed up as ‘irresistible’ by The Observer, and the American Record Guide admiring ‘tone qualities [that] are always pure and consistent, blend is impeccable, intonation flawless…’

Pianist Patricia Ulrich is a respected soloist and an experienced specialist in working with brass musicians, being accompanist for brass at the conservatories of Bern, Basel and Lucerne and working with trumpet teachers such as Markus Würsch, Klaus Schuhwerk and Immanuel Richter. In addition to her chamber music performances, Ulrich is a member of Switzerland’s renowned 21st Century Orchestra, and is a much sought-after accompanist for masterclasses and competitions.
