Notes & Reviews:

In 1997, at the age of twelve, Giuliano Sommerhalder traveled to Moscow from his mountain village of Astano in Ticino to take part in the International Trumpet Competition of the Tchaikovsky Conservatory. He won it, but set even greater store by the fact that the "living legends" among Russian trumpeters heard him and offered him their friendship. Timofei Dokschitzer, Venyamin Margolin, Yury Usov, and others saw in him a potential champion of their great tradition. Late-night discussions around kitchen tables in Moscow caused an ambitious plan to form in the boy’s mind. Then, eleven years later, Sommerhalder realized that ambition and recorded the most important and masterful of the few original trumpet concertos of the late and neo-Romantic eras in their long-lost orchestral versions. With only one exception, these are all world premiere recordings and prove that interesting and extremely virtuosic Romantic original works for the trumpet do exist!
