Think you know the trumpet? Think again! Composers through the ages have relished its distinctive, often thrilling voice, from the sprightly regal splendour of Handel's Queen of Sheba, the ceremonial solemnity of his Suite in D and the exuberantly virtuosic concerto by Haydn - to whom Prokofiev pays tribute in his tuneful Classical Symphony - with arrangements of Schubert's haunting Ave Maria and Argentinean master Astor Piazzolla's sizzling, sensuous Libertango adding seriousness and spice. The outstanding young Irish trumpeter, Niall O'Sullivan joins the RTÉ NSO for some thrilling trumpet showpieces.
