Notes & Reviews:

George Frideric Handel had an outstanding trumpeter in his orchestrs: Valentine Snow and "Mr. Handel's Trumpeter," as he was later called, inspired Handel to write numerous tailor-made trumpet parts for him. In this collection subtitled English Trumpet Music from Purcell to Handel, the distinctive Italianate influences of Purcell and his contemporaries are clearly teh basis for many of Handel's compositions. For their third Raumklang release, Johann Plietzsch leads his Barocktrompeten Ensemble Berlin comprised of eight trumpets, timpani, basso continuo, lute and organ.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
Splendid works for trumpets and timpani with lute or theorbo, bassoon, baroque cello, double bass, and organ. The music comes from 17th and 18th Century England, when the trumpet - or many of them - was an important element in the declaration and implementation of power.

The program opens with a suite from Henry Purcell's Who Can from Joy Refrain? (Ode for the Duke of Gloucester's Birthday, Z 342). It is a purely instrumental arrangement and it sounds terrific. In a suite from Handel's Water Music, perhaps the most interesting movement is the familiar Air, played by organ and pizzicato bass, taken at a brisk pace and given a dancelike lilt. In the same genre of court music is a Royal Trumpet Suite by Godfrey (Gottfried) Keller (1650-1704).

The rest of the program bears the subtitle "Music for the Theatre" and begins with the very familiar 'Trumpet Tune' by Jeremiah Clarke. As with a number of other selections here, it goes past quickly. Two pieces by John Shore (1662-1753) include 'Marlborough's Funeral March', given a grim and forceful reading on organ, bassoon, double bass, lute, and pounding timpani.

The eight members of Berlin Baroque Trumpet Ensemble play valveless instruments that have tone holes to improve the intonation of certain overtones. This is the ensemble's second album to come my way. Tromba Hispanica made a very good impression several years ago (July/Aug 2012: 227).
