The title of this
CD is derived from
Allen Vizzutti's suite Rising Sun
(track 3, 4 and 5). In the suite, the composer paints pictures of
images of Japan. The soloist has to change instrument on each part. Mount Fuji - piccolo
trumpet, Temples of Kyoto -
horn and Shinkansen: The Bullet Train
- Bb trumpet!
Sun is a very good title for this CD. When Jens Lindemann opens
piccolo trumpet in the first part, Mount Fuji, you can feel the sun
and the height of the mountain.
years ago I had the fortune of hearing the composer, Vizzutti, perform
this suite with piano accompaniment. It is like many of Vizzuttis
composition a very demanding piece. Lindemann as the "rising star" he
is on the trumpet sky, has all it takes to play it. The arrangment for brass band by Kevin Norbury is very well
done and makes the piece even more exciting than the original version
for trumpet and piano.
will take too much space to describe all the music on this album, but
as can be seen from the track listing, there are a wide range of music.
From soaring Ferguson-style high stuff to lyrical flugel horn
playing to cornet playing in Carl Hohne's Slavische Fantasie. I am also very
impressed with Lindemanns great sound on the high pitched trumpets like
his piccolo playing in Mount Fuji or his Eb trumpet
playing in the Concertino
by Sachse. One of his mentors, James Thompson, join him in a
performance of Joseph Horovitz' Concertino
Classico for two trumpets. The two soloists are well matched and
blend well in this three-movement work.
The Canadian Staff
Band of The Salvation Army, under the direction of Kevin Hayward, does
a great job throughout the recording. In my opinion one of the best
brass band in the world.
