REVIEWS:

he recording opens with Arthur Honegger’s Intrada, a staple of the trumpet repertoire in which Schwarz demonstrates excellent tone and technique. George Enescu’s Légende is the disc’s highlight for me. Well-known as a virtuoso violinist, Enescu remains underrated in composition… The work’s originality shows in an atmospheric and meditative opening, soft trumpet filigree passages, and a complex yet effective piano part. …I particularly like Senée’s composition for the cornet, especially the Romance movement, whose attractive melody is capped with a sudden pianissimo climax that Schwarz achieves impeccably.

-- The WholeNote

The heraldic character of the trumpet is put to brilliant use in such pieces as Arthur Honegger’s Intrada and André Jolivet’s Air de bravoure, while Henri Senée’s three-movement Concertino is a charmer, especially in a finale of lilting grace. More than a little whimsy is packed into Eugène Bozza’s Caprice and Claude Pascal’s Capriccio, as their titles imply.

Schwarz makes the most of these Gallic morsels, playing with refined and limber stylishness. He is fortunate to be paired with a pianist of equally tasteful artistry, Kun Woo Paik, a high-school chum who also went on to a noteworthy career.
