The natural trumpet (or clarino) which was played in the Baroque period had no valves or keys, just tiny holes in order to produce pitches other than the ones on the natural overtone series. With the addition of keys in the late 18th century, a whole new dimension was opened up for the instrument. It was now possible to play a full chromatic scale which enormously increased its performance capabilities.
Enter the world of 19th century virtuoso trumpet music. Suddenly, composers could write music for the instrument which hadn’t been conceivable just a decade before.
This recording features music written at the beginning of this new era. Join in on the discovery and feast your ears with performances by Robert Vanryne on instruments that he has built for this recording!
