HAYDN Trumpet Concerto in E-flat (14’)
GRUBER Busking (31’)
BEETHOVEN Twelve Contradances (12’)
JOHN STORGÅRDS Conductor
HÅKAN HARDENBERGER Trumpet
“Great fun for the audience” – very few new pieces of music are reviewed like that, but Busking is a trumpet concerto unlike any you will have heard before, and it does leave its audiences cheering. Virtuoso Håkan Hardenberger plays multiple instruments in it, while banjo and accordion join the ranks of the orchestra to help bring the vibrant, exotic world of street musicians into the concert hall. All in all it is a tour de force complemented by Beethoven’s delightful dances, Schulhoff’s jazzy serenade and an old favourite: Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto.
