Review: Hakan Hardenberger plays three trumpet concertos

Hakan Hardenberger, Gruber, Eotvos, Turnage, Deutsche Grammaphone

The Week magazine, which does a rather good job of running reviews of modern classical recordings, quotes three reviews of a new album of modern trumpet concertos, and all three reviews give the album good marks. The good notices come from newspapers in the United States, England and Ireland. Michael Dervan in the Dublin "Irish Times" writes, "This single disc may well contain more viable trumpet concertos than the entire 19th century managed to yield up."
