An innovative concert piece

This exceedingly effective, rhythmically pointed and lively concert piece The Chatting Trumpet by Lorenz Maierhofer is a highlight for brass quartets. Written in an original and innovative manner for a “solo trumpet within the brass quartet”, he gives the first trumpet the delightful opportunity to shine as a soloist and virtuoso. It opens the “chat contact”, whereupon a moving, animated conversation with the other instruments develops. In addition, an expressive, optional freely played cadenza before the finale should not be missing – the audience’s applause for the four performers is a certainty!
