The Trumpet Section of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra takes centre stage for a tribute to the prince of brass instruments, with Vivaldi's bright, resounding Concerto for Two Trumpets, John Adams' haunting Tromba Lontana and Leroy Anderson's joyfully effervescent Bugler's Holiday. The Overture to Cimarosa's The Secret Marriage and Intermezzo and Scherzo from Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream add stately wit and dreamy fantasy, with Shostakovich's First Ballet Suite a brilliantly orchestrated display of dancing delicacy and slap-stick charm.
