Longtime colleagues Joseph Foley and Bonnie Anderson join together for an exciting new CD of music for trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn, and piano! The disc features a pillar of the repertoire, Paul Hindemith’s Sonata, as well as a new standard, the Sonata by Eric Ewazen. It also includes less-frequently heard works, such as the charming Sonata for Cornet and Piano by Thorvald Hansen, the haunting sound of the flugelhorn on Richard Peaslee’s evocative Nightsongs, and a beautiful new transcription of Franz Strauss’ Nocturno by Joseph Foley. This CD should be a valuable resource to trumpet players, but also a wonderful listen for those who love “singing” instrumental music.
