Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

An exceptional program from two consummate performers, blending new arrangements of classical and baroque works with the premiere recording of Roger Steptoe's Sonata for Trumpet and Organ. Graham Ashton is professor of Trumpet at Purchase Collage, New York, and as a performer over the past 25 years has given over 200 master classes and recitals in 21 different countries, recording for Signum, Nimbus, Virgin Classics and many more. Michael Matthes is a similarly esteemed performer - a tenured organist of the Cathedral of Troyes, France and a recipient of the prestigious French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in recognition of his services to music. "succeeds on every level: extraordinary musicianship, clear and sonorous recorded sound, fresh and interesting repertoire." The Brass Player (New York)

"A really worth-while extension of the brass ensemble repertoire... Recommended unreservedly." Musical pointers

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
This is not a showstopper recital, but rather a series of mildly attractive pieces performed by skilled and thoughtful musicians.
