Description: For a Sinfonia Concertante, Kozeluch's 1798 example is a monster - 35-minutes with a 17-minute first movement. Plainly the main work here and its combination of unlikely solo instruments is as entertaining as it appears. Three of these works are played on a keyed trumpet (an instrument which only lasted a couple of decades at the start of the 19th century) manufactured by its soloist. Two others use a valve-and-crook trumpet from around 1850 and the Weber a trumpet in F from 1875. Lots of neat sounds for period instrument enthusiasts! Ulrike Schneider (mezzo), Robert Vanryne (trumpet), Kathryn Cok (fortepiano), Anna Torge (mandolin), David Sinclair (double bass), Kölner Akademie; Michael Alexander Willens. SACD hybrid
