About

Three exceptional concerts at the 2010 Verbier Festival

Shostakovitch's Concerto is misleadingly entitled "for trumpet and piano" as it is really a piano concerto with an important part for the solo trumpet. The work was premiered in 1933 with the composer at the piano and the Leningrad Philharmonic. Throughout the work both Shostakovich's lyrical and sarcastic vein are full in play, the latter especially in the trumpet's "interruptions." It is beautifully performed by Gábor Takács-Nagy conducting the Verbier Festival Chamber orchestra, with Martha Argerich on the piano and David Guerrier on the trumpet.
