Review by Wartybliggens August 15, 2013 (4 of 4 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
Here's one of those albums that even hard-core classical fans might tend to overlook. French trumpet stuff. But it being from BIS and being multichannel got my attention, and then it has pieces by Jolivet, who wrote one of my favorite things, a wind quintet piece you can find on on /showreviews/5929. So I bought this. Turns out, it's fantastic. There is so much color and incident in the music on this album, which completely negates any possibility of trumpet overload, and there is a lot of very difficult stuff that the trumpet player (Ole Edvard Antonsen) just flows through wonderfully. The most conservative piece is by Robert Planel, which at first seemed rather lightweight, but it's so well-crafted that it's growing on me. The Tomasi piece is full of thrilling contrasts. The Jolivet second concerto is a kind of stylistically bonkers masterpiece. As far as the recording, it's perfectly vivid, clear and spacious. This album is a great accomplishment for all concerned. I hope it gets noticed.
