Musician | Educator | Band leader | Composer | Author | Ambassador

Born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1961, Wynton Marsalis received his first trumpet at the age of six, a gift from the legendary Al Hirt. Fostered by his community and family, Wynton began to perform in local bands. At the age of 17, he was accepted into The Juilliard School in New York City and soon thereafter ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A stunning selection of Wynton's most celebrated classical recordings, including works by Bach, Vivaldi, Purcell, Rimsky-Korsakov, Handel, Bernstein, Haydn, Paganini and more. Of particular note are a duet with Kathleen Battle from the Baroque Duet album and one previously unreleased performance. 20 tracks, more than 70 minutes of music!

Wynton Marsalis may not have an easily recognizable or even particularly handsome tone, but this erstwhile jazz trumpeter is an amazing virtuoso with a fine sense of classical style. If you've never owned/heard any of his classical CDs, and you love (mostly baroque) trumpet music, this compilation--a sort of "greatest hits"--is for you. From such cruddy, sensationalistic works as Carnival of Venice to the glories of Haydn's E-Flat Concerto, this is grand entertainment. Marsalis is joined by Kathleen Battle in an exciting version of Handel's "Let the bright seraphim," and the treat there is doubled. A fine piece by Hovhaness for trumpet and organ, never before released, is another surprise. Come listen to the endless, seemingly casual roulades that come out of this guy's trumpet--they'll wake you right up. --Robert Levine

4.0 out of 5 stars in response to the other reviews... September 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I think that it's important to realize the nature of this release. This is a compilation; more importantly, it is a retrospective work which attempts to cover all of Wynton's classical output. The fact that this CD contains so many baroque works is chiefly due to two reasons: first, the baroque works featured here are short and fit more easily on this type of release; and second, the number of baroque works that Marsalis has recorded makes up a large percentage of his output, and that output is well represented here. This CD introduces the listener to Wynton's entire classical discography on Sony/CBS. From these samples, the listener may choose what he/she would like to hear more of.

Robert Levine states that "Wynton Marsalis may not have an easily recognizable or even particularly handsome tone..." in his review for Amazon. This is very untrue, especially in the case of Wyton's classical playing. Marsalis has a very beautiful and very pure sound, and a tone quality which is easily recognizable to any listener with a beginning knowledge of trumpet players. His vibrato, especially on the piccolo trumpet, is unmistakable. Perhaps Mr. Levine's statement would hold true for some of Wynton's jazz releases, where his vibrato and sound are not the same (nor does he try to make them). Compare the sound between something like "Standard Time, vol. 3" and Wynton's first classical release, and you will immediately see the difference. Style, concept, and even choice of equipment all come into play here, and few listeners will have trouble distinguishing Wynton's Michael Haydn from Maurice Andre's (or anyone else's).

As you can see, many of the reviews here complain about the inclusion of so much baroque music.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Always Amazed at How Wonderful Wynton Sounds March 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I first encountered Wynton Marsalis on a PBS special (channel surfing). I landed on the channel and their was a performance of an orchestra with a trumpet player out front. When I heard this trumpet player play, he sounded very crisp, clear, and had a wonderful tone. He immediately got my attention, so I watched the show 'til it ended. Unfortunately, every time they announced his name, I could not catch it over the applause and noise of the crowd. Later, I saw him again on PBS, only this time he was being interviewed for Ken Burns' Jazz show. I finally saw his name and began to search for his music.
I am very impressed with the fact that Wynton can play anything from Jazz to Classical. This CD is a collection of his classical pieces and demonstrates exactly what I heard that day I was channel surfing. Wynton plays the music of composers from Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi, Hummel, Haydn, Pagnini, etc. The music is nice, his sound is clear and crisp, and the CD contains over 69 minutes of music.
While being a recently new fan of Wynton's, I have only three of his CDs. This particular CD, among the three I have is my favorite.

4.0 out of 5 stars the other side of the incomprable wynton marsalis January 22, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan a wynton for a few years and have the greatest respect for him. I am a college trumpet player who listens to a lot of different players and genres, but i find him to be my absolute favorite. This classic album has a great list of some of the most frequently performed classical works for trumpet ever. It has been very helpful for auditions and just plain entertaining.
Also, he is incredible live! Check out his jazz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and Open Trumpet Solo Work May 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Here the jazz trumpeter excellent shifts to classical numbers, and pulls them off with a vibrancy and clarity that makes for great listening enjoyment.
Many, especially J. Clarke's are Processional type pieces, so they are royal and magnificent. Marsalis is very crisp and clean in his phrasing. His sound is crystal and sharp.
Especially enjoyable is his work on J. Haydyn's Trumpet Concerto in E-flat major, which moves and showcases his allegro abilities.
The delicacy emitted on the piece with soprano superb Battle is magnificent, a rendering of Handel's "Let the Bright Seraphim."
Truly the versatility of this premier trumpeter pours forth for the near seventy minutes of this collection, from Vivaldi to Bach's Brandenburg, to Mozart to Bernstein's Rondo for Lifey.

I am a young musician, and i found this collection of music really inspiring. Track 15 is a piece that's printed in the "Arban" book, and it's fun playing along with the CD. I would reccomend anyone that likes classical trumpet get it. It's so inspiring! =o)

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Wynton--brilliant, clear trumpet renditions February 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
For anyone who loves trumpet music as I do, this album is a must. Wynton Marsalis has mastered twenty all-time favorite pieces with such brilliance, that no other trumpeteer comes near by comparison. Opening with J. Clarke's, The King's March, Wynton proceeds to favor listeners with such baroque favorites as Purcell's Entrada from "The Indian Queen," J. Clark's The Prince of Denmark's March and J. Stanley's Trumpet Voluntary. Fantastic selections from Bach, Mozart, and Haydn follow, with the album also including such delightful listening as The Last Rose of Summer, Carnival of Venisee, and Flight of the Bumblebee. You won't be disappointed with this purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classical Wynton July 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Signature Wynton!! A wonderful grouping of masterfully performed trumpet literature. A "must have" for any trumpet performer. As expected, Wynton displays his virtuosity in a marvelously enjoyable collection of the trumpets finest works. Among these crown jewels of performance, "Moto Perpetuo" is a blazing display of his virtuosity. A wonderful album. I never tire listening to it.
