Notes & Reviews:

The unique qualities of the American trumpet tradition are celebrated in this wide-ranging disc. From the drama of Leo Eylar's dazzling Dance Suite to the wit of William McKinley's Miniature Portraits, virtuosity and brilliance are assured. The two songs from Sondheim's musical Sweeney Todd, orchestrated by McKinley with the composer's consent, convey a quality of ardent determination. Jeffrey Silberschlag is the dedicatee of a number of these works and he carries on the illustrious lineage of American trumpeters. He is partnered by Gerard Schwarz, himself one of the great trumpeters of his generation, before turning to conducting.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Jeffrey Silberschlag is on the music faculty at St Mary's College of Maryland. He impresses me. His tone is often warm. Silberschlag is the arranger, McKinley the orchestrator of the songs 'Johanna' and 'Not While I'm Around' from Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd. Sondheim's fascinating music is given lots of color, what with Silberschlag's use of mutes and McKinley's scoring for trumpet with xylophone, harp, and strings.
