Format: Audio CD
People may solely know Marsalis as a world-class Jazz musician, but he's... at worst... pretty darn good on Classical works too. He does have a strong background in both Jazz and Classical. And he played all of the pieces very well, including those requiring killer high notes. Forget all the negative responses; he does an absolutely great job!

This album features some of the most beloved works for trumpet, all which were composerd during the Baroque and Classical era. The original release has him performing concertos by Haydn, Leopold Mozart (Wolfgang's dad), and Hummel, as well as a concerto for trumpet and 2 oboes by Fasch. The Haydn is above all a classic for all Classically trained trumpet players.

The bonus tracks not included in the former releast, however, makes it even better; two exciting concertos requiring killer high notes (even up to a high A!), and another one featuring two trumpets (even though Marsalis played both parts using multitrack - would have been nicer if he worked with another trumpet player, perhaps Maurice Andre). Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 2, the latter of the works with high notes, is a piece you're likely to hear in one place or another, and it's a must for every trumpet player to check it out. All works in general require a great deal of virtuosity and musicality, so like any Maynard Ferguson piece, it's pretty darn hard to master.

This is a perfect album whether you're a Wynton Marsalis fan, or enjoy listening to any hard-core trumpet music regardless of genre.

What a fantastic musician! This is the third recording I have had of Haydn's trumpet concerto and it is the best. The clarity and distinction of each note is thrilling. The other pieces on the recording are of excellent quality too, but I judge all trumpet concertos by Haydn and this was exquisite.

Elegant music. Bright, clear trumpeting that infuses the music with majesty. I recently heard another player cover one of these songs - nowhere near as vivid.

It doesn't get any better than Wynton Marsalis, softly playing through out my house! Guests always say who is that, and where can I get a copy!

For me, this album represents one of the most astounding trumpet performances of all time. The virtuosity, the passion, the refined sensitivity--this is a performance for the ages. This is so much better than Maurice Andre. This far better than Alison Balsom. Listen to the Haydn or Hummel tracks. You will be impressed, I promise.

The recording is also of the highest quality. So if you listen to your music on audiophile-grade equipment, you will marvel at the separation between trumpet and orchestra, the focus, the attack on every trumpet blast. The recording quality is fantastic.

Performance = 5-stars; recording = 5-stars; for a total of 5-stars overall.

This album can be listened to time and again for years without losing its considerable vitality and serenity; it just keeps giving. I do not give out five stars easily. This album comes highly recommended.
