The whole show today isn’t about trumpets – no, really! But there are a
couple of interesting pieces you may enjoy if your preferences run more
toward the brassy back row of the orchestra.
We’ll hear Neruda’s
time-honored Concerto for Trumpet in a sparkling performance with Alison
Balsom, and, Mahler’s brilliant song, "Where the beautiful trumpets blow". For the grand finale of our 9am hour, it’s Haydn’s "Hornsignal" Symphony #31.
You may extract those earplugs now.
