Hardenberger has been described as ‘the best trumpet player in the galaxy’ The Times)
and a ‘colossus of the trumpet [with a] fabulously velvet tone’(The Guardian).
|The RTÉ NSO/Hardenberger collaboration will look to the past in style and showcase a modern marvel. Haydn’s lyrical and exuberant Concerto for Trumpet is always an audience favourite; Prokofiev’s ‘Classical’ symphony is an exhilarating homage to Haydn and Mozart; and Ravel’s Le tombeau de Couperin is an elegant and elegiac borrowing of Classical dance rhythms paying tribute to friends killed in battle.
||As befits an artist who, alongside his phenomenal performances of the classical repertory, is also held in high regard as a pioneer of significant and virtuosic new trumpet works, it will showcase a modern marvel, Robert Planel’s exhilaratingly tuneful and atmospheric concerto.
