Trumpet Concerto No.1 in E-flat major (Hertel, Johann Wilhelm)
Follow us on. Johann Christian and Johann Wilhelm were a father and son combination, who although directly related, were somewhat different in style and content as the works on this disc amply demonstrate. The composer's father duly obliged though, with some smashing virtuosic pieces for 3 trumpets and a timpani corps which kept his employer happy and satisfied. The 2 sinfonias in D recorded here are 2 such creations, both full of celebratory opulence and technical brilliance which should certainly captivate and delight. JW, in contrast to his father, ventured beyond the baroque mentality and embraced the latest developments.
