Between 1965 and
1977, Maurice André
made several recordings on the German label Deutsche Grammophone
(DG). For a very long time these excellent recordings have been
unavailable. When André
celebrated his 70th anniversary in 2003 (he was born in Alés, May 21, 1933), DG decided to
reissue these recordings on CD.
The box with 2 CDs
contains145 min. of
music from four LPs that DG recorded with André
: Telemann, Handel,
Haydn, Richter, Scarlatti, Vivaldi, Viviani, Torelli, Stölzel.
Carss sings the bass aria, "The
Trumpet Shall Sound", from the Messiah by Hande.
This is also used as the
title for the whole collection.
In the CD booklet,
will find photos of André
and other musicians, and an up-to-date article by the trumpet expert
Edward Tarr. Here is a short quote from Tarr's text:
