Notes & Reviews:

Throughout much of the western world in the 18th and 19th centuries, the sounds of posthorns, bugles and signal-trumpets were a regular and meaningful part of people 's everyday lives. These instruments were used in horse-drawn coach and steamship travel, in religious services and civic ceremonies, for hunting and horse racing, by firefighters, athletic and bicycle clubs, and in military settings. However, the most familiar and often-heard calls and tunes were those associated with the postal system and the delivery of the mail, and it was here that signal instruments found their fullest musical development and growth. The importance and prevalence of these "post" horns and the music they produced was such that many composers of art music were inspired to incorporate their signals and songs, or adaptations of them, into their compositions. Douglas Hedwig was the first trumpeter to be awarded the Doctor of Musical Arts Degree from the Juilliard School, and is presently Professor of Trumpet and Director of Brass Instrument Studies at Brooklyn College of CUNY. He has been music director of the Metropolitan Brass Quartet, and from 1976 to 2004, he was a member and soloist with the world-famous Goldman Band.
