It is the instrument that sets an ensemble alight, its brilliant tone soaring high over orchestras and jazz groups alike. Now, The Essential Trumpet captures all those scintillating moments – a classical greatest hits collection in the tradition of The Essential Piano, Guitar and Violin. Hear why composers from Handel to Mahler have used the trumpet to herald the entry into heaven, and why its greatest players occupy a hallowed place among the world’s virtuoso instrumentalists.
