Oriental Trumpet Concertos / Boldoczki, Dybal, Cracow Sinfonietta
Gábor Boldoczki is a figure respected world-wide in the field of trumpeting, and his reputation is confirmed by the fact that two of the works here, those by Say and Penderecki, were actually written for him. He plays throughout not only with technical mastery, but also with an unaffected musicianship, which makes the performances all the more pleasing. His only blemish is occasional sharpness of pitch in the high register; but this never lasts too long, nor is too painful, and is generously offset by his many other qualities.
All in all a rewarding and enjoyable CD. Fine playing, and music which is challenging but far from inaccessible.
