Robert Sullivan, associate principal trumpet of the New York Philharmonic, has a sweet tone and a sense of ease that allows these works to sound natural, rather than like tests of ability. All of the pieces are tuneful and enjoyable, but I am especially touched by Bernstein’s ‘Simple Song’, Gallagher’s ‘Capriccio’, Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise, Bohme’s ‘Russian Dance’ and the Puccini arias. – Kilpatrick, ARG

Perhaps no other brass instrument has seen as intense an evolution of its possibilities as the trumpet. This CD strives to represent a wide variety of the characters available to the trumpeter.

Many of the works are new arrangements or adaptations, and although most are infrequently heard, they are all treasures in the trumpet repertoire.
