Description: The program opens with Tomasi’s Concerto. Often performed and recorded, it here appears on album for the first time with its original, longer ending, reconstructed from a newly discovered manuscript. Another rarity is the version for trumpet and orchestra of Florent Schmitt’s Suite, a work which is more commonly heard with piano accompaniment. Rather more frequent in concert are Jolivet’s Concerto and the Concertino in which Hardenberger is joined by his regular chamber music partner Roland Pöntinen as co-soloist. The most recent work on the disc is Onze Lieder (1977) by Betsy Jolas, a work which has a special resonance for both soloist and conductor as it was written for their trumpet teacher Pierre Thibaud. A 15-minute cycle of “songs”, sometimes dreamy, sometimes caustic and at times evoking jazz or popular music. Håkan Hardenberger (trumpet), Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra; Fabien Gabel.
