The second volume of this series (Volume 1 is on 8573995) visits 20th-century France, where the combination of trumpet and piano inspired music of ravishing beauty, intimacy and wit. Through the bluesy retrospection of Jean Hubeau’s Sonata, the voluptuous rhapsody of Florent Schmitt’s Suite and the avantgarde eclecticism of Antoine Tisné’s Héraldiques, this album explores the quintessentially Gallic sonorities that came to redefine the instrument’s voice for the modern era.

Winner of the Prague Spring, Ellsworth Smith, Girolamo Fantini, Only Brass and Lieksa international trumpet competitions, Huw Morgan is principal trumpet of the Sinfonieorchester Basel, and a founder member of brass ensemble Septura. He can be heard on over 30 commercial recordings, including the ongoing Music for Brass Septet series on Naxos.

Vol.1 is available on 8573995. The Art Music Lounge wrote: ‘Morgan plays it with great elegance and a warm tone. We end with a trumpet transcription of three arias from György Ligeti’s very strange opera, Mysteries of the Macabre. It’s excellent and even funny music, of course… Morgan plays with a beautiful tone, as ever.’
