Baroque works for oboe have long been fertile ground for transcription to the trumpet and there are several examples here of this refashioning. The sequence of concertos and sonatas include examples from Handel’s Italian years, and from Johann Gottfried Stölzel, who was strongly influenced by Vivaldi. Telemann’s marvellously inventive Concerto in D major is performed on the modern flugelhorn. In addition, there is the only known surviving work from Johann Michael Fasch, younger brother of the more famous Johann Friedrich.

Thomas Reiner’s brilliant and light tone in the high register predestines him for the performance of particularly exposed trumpet parts. Of his 2007 Naxos recording (8570501), MusicWeb International commented: ‘Reiner clearly has a fine command of his instrument… The results are eminently listenable.’ In 2011 Reiner was honoured to be invited by the International Trumpet Guild as the only German trumpet player to the conference in Minneapolis to perform in front of professional audiences from all over the world.

With 200 to 350 concerts a year, Interpreti Veneziani is one of the most sought-after orchestras on the European music scene. In addition to the perfectly coordinated interplay, the musical skills of the individual musicians are also evident in the solo playing during the performances. Each year they perform in prestigious concert halls around the world, and have released more than 20 albums.
